Reedham Gospel Hall goes up for sale
The Gospel Hall in the Broadland village of Reedham has closed, and will be going under the auction hammer, because of a decline in attendance.
The property, overlooking the river from an elevated position in the village, has a main hall with a wooden floor, a kitchen, cloakrooms and a garden. It is on sale with a guide price of £60,000.
The hall, which is run by a board of trustees, is believed to date back partly to 1899 and has been used over the years for services as well as community events. In 2017 it was the backdrop for a passion play depicting the last few days before Jesus' death, performed in front of 500 people.
Janice Coleman, whose father Malcolm is one of the trustees, said: "The hall has now closed because of dwindling numbers and people getting older and not able to manage it any longer. It would be lovely if someone could buy it for the community or redevelop it."
This is based on an article in the Eastern Daily Press.
