In autumn 2021,England including Huddersfield (2 games),will host the Rugby League World Cup. As usual,when England are the hosts, the media and fans from all over the World will make the pilgrimage to the George Hotel in Huddersfield in order to pay homage to the birthplace of Rugby League.This time the pilgrims will be in for shock, as the George Hotel is now a sad dilapidated building desperately in need of some care and attention.The World Cup should be a boost for our town but if the George Hotel is left in its present condition it will  be an embarrassment and also a sad indictment on our town’s duty of care to its Victorian heritage.

We the undersigned believe that it  is now time for Kirklees Council to intervene and if necessary use its statutory powers to seize this grade 2 listed building.
