Welcome to HCH!
Let us introduce ourselves, we are the incoming trustees/directors of the new Henley Community Hub. A group of four community minded Henley dwellers, whose aim is to refurbish this important Henley building and make it accessible to all.
We are working, together with Henley Music School to bring this wonderful, characterful hall back to life, so it can continue to be used by the whole community for another 100 years.
We hope that with help we will be able to raise the funds to ensure the hall is refurbished, futureproofed and sustainable.
The amount needed is likely to be upwards of £1,000,000!
If you are a charity, individual, or group and would like to pledge your support, get involved, or have any wonderful ideas for us, please get in touch. firstname.lastname@example.org
Our vision for Trinity Hall is to sympathetically renovate the hall, so it remains looking as it was intended, but brought into this century, accessible and fit for purpose.
The hall was built by John Hodges, and was put into trust on 17th August 1908, as a community hall, for use by the community.
There will be a flexible performance, rehearsal, meeting place where many different activities can take place, from weddings to concerts, dance classes to community larders. A working kitchen, teaching rooms, office, counselling room. we would like as many local charities and community groups to get involved as possible.
Laura lives in Henley & is the CEO and founder of Henley Music School, a local charity providing music education to anyone regardless of age, ability, background or means. Currently over 800 children and 100 adults take part in the musical fun provided by HMS.
Laura is also a Henley Mermaid, a group of 5 women who raise money for charity by taking on swimming challenges. In the last 3 years they've raised over £80,000. This year Laura will be swimming the English Channel solo to raise money for HCH, so that the refurbishment can start!
