The Highgate Newtown Mission Hall Group (trading as Save the Mission Hall Group) has now been granted Charitable registration (No. 1184443) and has opened a temporary bank account in Michael Ellman’s name (re HNMHG) with Royal Bank of Scotland (in which we now have £2126.96). We are endeavouring to open an account in the Group’s name at the Co-op bank or Natwest.
Appeals have been sent to a number of local people, and we have had a positive response from the famous guitarist Paco Pena, who will do a concert in the Hall. We have written to a number of local groups, and are following these up, also the Victorian Society, and Architectural Heritage Fund. We are continuing our applications to the Lottery Heritage Fund and other funders.
We had a meeting with L.B.Camden, who have agreed to keep the Hall for us until at least 30 November, and we must show them by then that we have a substantial part of the money collected or promised.
