Parish Hall Update

Parish Hall Update 17 February 2024


St John’s Parish Hall update from the PCC of St. John’s Church and Meads (Eastbourne) Community Centre

Work continues to conclude an agreement between St John’s and the recently-established Meads (Eastbourne) Community Centre to hand over the running and maintenance of the Parish Hall in Meads Village. This agreement is on the basis of a 99 year lease at a peppercorn rent, in line with guidance issued by the Charity Commission. We hope to conclude this agreement in the coming weeks, with the engagement of the two parties, the Diocese of Chichester and the Charity Commission. 

We are keen to ensure that local residents are fully informed about the background to these discussions and to the solution which is being pursued. You can access the full details, including some of the Q&As been asked, by clicking on this link
