£150k of Big Local investment could help save Harmony Hall. Please tell us if you support this suggestion here: Harmony Hall survey

We want to know if we have the support of the local community, in particular William Morris Ward residents, to invest £150k of Big Local funds to try and save Harmony Hall being sold off to private developers. The key points are as follows;

  • The owners of Harmony Hall Community Centre, located just off Walthamstow High Street, want to sell the building and this means a valuable community resource could be lost forever.
  • Harmony Hall is situated on the doorstep of the William Morris Ward and has 1,500 local visitors per week and is home to 70 local groups.
  • Valuable children’s activities, mental health services and language classes are held there and it is also home to a wide range of faith groups.
  • The Big Local Partnership is in agreement that losing this resource would be detrimental to people living in the William Morris Ward as well as the wider community.
  • Harmony Hall can be saved if CREST, the tenants who have managed the centre for 20 years, can raise £1million to buy it. CRESThas been seeking to raise the necessary funds through grants, loans and donations but are short of the £1million needed to purchase the building.
  • An investment of £150k would make William Morris Big Local a co-owner and mean that we have a stake in shaping services, activities and programmes at Harmony Hall that can benefit people in the William Morris ward for years to come.
