St. George’s Hall Volunteers, a group of volunteers based in The Hall have been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK.
The Volunteers run the community café and the cinema as well as assisting with music and drama events in the Hall and have a hugely positive impact on the lives of local people.
St. George’s Hall Volunteers is one of 230 charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups to receive the prestigious award this year. The number of nominations remains high year on year, showing that the voluntary sector is thriving and full of innovative ideas to make life better for those around them.
The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service aims to recognise outstanding work by volunteer groups to benefit their local communities. It was created in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. Recipients are announced each year on 2nd June, the anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation.
Following the advice issued by the Government the Trustees regret to announce that the Hall is closed, future Cinema in the Hall screenings and Music in the Hall performances cancelled and the cafe closed until Governement regulations alter and it is safe to reopen.
The Trustees will continue to meet regularly to review the situation and aim to re-open as soon as it is safe to do so.
Please continue to look at this website and Facebook pages for further updates.
