Burnham's Mayor and Mayoress join 60 supporters at Princess event

Burnham's Mayor and Mayoress were among 60 people who attended a social evening organised by the town's 'Friends of The Princess Hall' on Saturday (17th April).

The event, held at the Princess, gave residents a chance to hear more about the group's strategy to run the hall and also pledge their support.

A short film was shown, outlining some of the successful events that have been held there in recent years.

The group's chairman, John Holmes, told "We were very pleased with the turnout and attracted over a dozen new members on the night."

"We hope that people went away knowing a lot more about our plans to run the Princess as a theatre and community facility."

Tessa Munt, Burnham's Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate, took a break from her election campaign to attend and she told "The Princess is a marvellous community facility for many groups and different activities. It would be ludicrious for it to be let go."

In February, was first to report here that four bidders are in the frame to take over the management of the hall.
