One of Knutsford’s key community buildings is in search of new trustees to help manage it. Located on Stanley Road as part of the Libris building, the Jubilee Hall is managed by the Knutsford Old Folks Club, a registered charity. It is home to groups such as the Thursday Club, the 58 Club and the town’s three WI group as well as being the venue for a range of community meetings.
Two long-serving trustees are stepping down in September and the charity seeking three new trustees to oversee key aspects of the hall’s management, without which the hall’s future could be uncertain. The hall, which opened in the year of HM The Queen’s golden jubilee, is currently closed due to the coronavirus restrictions on gatherings.
The three new trustees needed are:
- Chairman/secretary to oversee the general management of the charity including to coordinate monthly trust meetings
- Treasurer to manage the charity finances (turnover £10,000 per year)
- Building supervisor to oversee the maintenance and general management of the hall and supporting the booking secretary
Encouraging volunteers to come forward, retiring chairman Derek Empson said “I have fulfilled the three roles myself for the last twelve years but now need to hand over the reins.
With the support of three new trustees the Jubilee Hall will be able to continue serving the Knutsford community, providing a modern, accessible and affordable meeting space. Without new trustees the future of the hall is unknown, and it would be terrible if it was lost”
