The auction of the Parish Hall was held today in the White Hart Hotel. Carter Jonas, acting on behalf of the church trustees had been instructed to place the hall on the market.

The auction was brief, just 10 minutes with two bidders. In the end, it was sold to the Parish Hall Committee, the existing tenant, for £50,000. The winning bid was made by the committee’s secretary, Nick Reynolds.

The hall has a long history in Whitchurch, dating back around 100 years, and has seen a wide range of events and activities over the years.
