There have been lots of rumours in the press and out on the streets about Haigh Hall. I have learnt some interesting facts.
One thing for sure is Labour has let Haigh Hall fall into a diabolical. This Labour run Council is now saying it needs about £10 million to bring it up to spec again. The issue for me is they have let it get in this state by not spending any money over the last decades, so why are they so surprised now that they need £10 Million.
So they are looking for private company to come in and put the money in and that company will get to run the Hall as a way for them to get their money back plus profit too.
However, they know that is a tall order, so they are looking for grants for up to £10 million and then get a private company to run the Hall, so the company will get an up to date business with minimal investment.
One thing that they are looking at is turning the Hall into a Hotel. The thing is that they will want to build more bedrooms so at the back of the Hall the hill could be removed and the new bedroom block there. I think this will change the whole area and character of the Hall.
Another idea could be a garden centre too.
The one thing that worry's me is every time Labour do something they mess it up. There is nothing that they haven't touch that has worked out. We will see how they go with this but one thing that is for sure they can't be allowed to mess this up.
