A Save Our Fairfield Halls petition has been started appealing to the Council to reconsider it decision to close the Halls for refurbishment.
The proposed closure was a major topic at Croydon Council on 7 December with it being treated as party political football watched by 2 members of the Halls’ staff and one volunteer sitting in the public gallery. Closure means the loss of 140 full and part-time jobs.
They had submitted three questions for reply by Culture Cabinet member Timothy Godfrey. There were also several questions submitted by the Councillors as well as one of the sale proceeds of the Riesco Collection.
The full text of the questions and answers and extracts from reports to the Council meeting about the Hall can be read here:
