Custodians of Fenton Town Hall, who’re currently protecting three war memorials from removal and another from possible complete demolition, as in the case of the unique Minton Hollins tiled First World War memorial, have been served with a court summons by the Ministry of Justice.
The custodians were very disappointed and surprised to receive this summons, particularly as negotiations are ongoing between the custodians and the Ministry of Justice regarding the transfer of the building. Moreover the activities taking place at the property are injecting value into the community – helping to improve lives and raise aspirations. The custodians are also looking after the building, keeping it secure and making repairs.
The court case takes place next Wednesday 10th December, 2.30pm at Stoke-on-Trent Combined Court, Bethesda Street, Hanley.
If the community wishes to fight on there could be considerable costs to pay. Please help if you can.
