Tudorville Residents Association held a special fund raising Bingo Night at Tudorville Youth Centre on Friday to raise the much needed funds to save the building which has been deemed by Herefordshire Council's Childrens' Directorate as 'unfit for purpose.'

The Bingo Night was a wonderful success but was a little late starting as so many people were queuing up to take part in the event, extra seating had to be found, not to mention extra bingo books. As well as the bingo, a raffle took place and both offered brilliant prizes which were kindly donated by local businesses, including Audrey's Fish Bar, the Vine Tree, Noah's Ark, Tudorville Store, the Seven Seas, Hunky Dory, Megabounce, the Royal Hotel, Bengal Lounge, Café Eleganza, two local butchers, Andy Pack and many more. The organizers were overwhelmed by the support and are delighted to announce that instead of the expected £200 mark, a magnificent total of £1212.65 was raised for their campaign to save the centre.

Tudorville Youth Centre is in great need of repair, some £200,000 wroth, hence Herefordshire Council's decision to declare the building as no longer fit for purpose. However, a newly formed committee of Tudorville residents are negotiating with the council for an asset transfer of the building to enable it's transformation into a community hall, which will benefit all in the Tudorville area and beyond.

The new committee is made up of very competent people with many skills who have produced a business plan outlining their plans for the building. This plan is now in the process of being studied by the officers before being presented to Councillor Harry Bramer for agreement for cabinet to sign off. A lot of hard work has gone into both the plan and the structuring of the committee, which comprises six trustees from fourteen people who will also cover three sub groups. There is also an extensive list of people all willing to put time and effort into making this venture a success.

The community of Tudorville is a strong community and if the level of support experienced thus far continues, it should not be too long before we see Tudorville Community Hall opening its doors. We wish you all every success!
