New charitable trust formed to look after Burnham's Princess Hall

Burnham's Princess HallA new charitable trust is being set-up in Burnham-On-Sea to look after the town's Princess Hall - and business-minded local residents are being sought to help.

The Friends of the Princess is creating the trust as part of its work to try and secure the future of the hall as a community facility.

Sedgemoor District Council has confirmed that it intends to award a contract, in accordance with European Legislation, for the future operation of the Princess.

The Friends group, which was formed in March, has told Burnham-On-Sea.com that it intends to compete for the contract in order to operate the hall - and that it is seeking the help of local residents.

"The Friends are now looking for business-minded people to act as the operator of the Princess, including running a licensed facility within the building," a spokesman for the group told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

Anyone interested in the commercial aspects of the Princess, as part of the bid to Sedgemoor District Council from the Friends' Charitable Trust, should send a written expression of interest to Friends of the Princess, C/O The Princess, Princess Street, Burnham-On-Sea, TA8 1EH, for discussion at their next meeting, to reach the 'Friends' by Sunday 10th May, 2009.

The Friends are also seeking volunteers to help with fundraising and events. Anyone interested should contact Mike Lang on 07889 815860 or via the above address.

Various posts have also been announced by the Friends group. The Chairman's role is now occupied by John Holmes, Vice Chairman is Tom Ashton, Minutes secretary and Marketing Manager is Vikki Hart and PR Manager is Mike Lang.
