Update from Building Preservation Trust (BPT)

Two of our long standing trustees stepped down at our BPT AGM held on the 29th of December. Carole Coyne and Geoff Lill have spent 14 years each on the committee and have seen us through the entire refurbishment project.  They have both agreed to work on a couple of projects until the Spring when our current funding ends, where we hope to have completed the improvements to the air handling system. Carole was our main liaison with the contractors and project managers when we were refurbishing and has an encyclopaedic understanding of our lovely old building – that as we know is not without it’s quirks ! Geoff has overseen all our accounting practices, including managing the massive £1.2 million grant from the Heritage Lottery. He will be very difficult to replace but we are looking to you, our lovely members to see if you, or anyone you know, may have the skills and experience to pick up this role. You can email charlotte@southlondontheatre.co.uk for more info.


We have to say a massive thank you to Carole and Geoff – 28 years collectively of  volunteer hours helping us not only stay open, but thrive, is something future generations of members will benefit from.  We have a small gift ready for you and once we are allowed to meet we will have a proper SLT celebration.
