A "People's" Town Hall for Beverley

Beverley Town Council is pleased to announce that is in the process of purchasing the old St John Ambulance Brigade building, which has proudly stood on the corner of Morton Lane and Wilbert Lane since 1888.

The building has been under the ownership of the St John Ambulance organisation since 1945, but has stood empty for the last 5 years amid speculation that it would be sold to developers and demolished.  The acquisition by the Town Council will see the preservation and transformation of what was originally a Victorian Scottish Baptist Chapel into a vibrant new Town Hall and community space for Beverley.

This intervention by Beverley Town Council will open an exciting new chapter in the building’s 134-year history and ensure it remains an important community asset for future generations of Beverlonians.
