Save St Michael's Church Hall Barnes

This petition had 619 supporters

The future of St Michael's Church Hall and St Michael’s Nursery School on Elm Bank Gardens in Barnes are at serious risk.

The Church committee plans to demolish the Church Hall and replace it with a townhouse for sale. There would be a small compromised "hall" tucked behind the house but this would not be fit for the current purpose and the proposed hall does not have a viable emergency escape. Or they may decide to sell off the whole site to a developer.

  • The nursery, which has given countless local children the best start in life for over 40 years, will not be able to operate on the new site, leaving 50 children without a local nursery;
  • The excellent nursery teachers will lose their jobs;
  • And the many other users of the hall will lose out - groups, classes and private events.

We, local parents, believe the Church Hall should be protected and restored - not demolished!

It can then continue as a thriving nursery and community asset.

Please show your support for the protection of the Hall and nursery by signing this petition and joining our Facebook page: "Save St Michael's Nursery Barnes".
