House call for empty village hall
A SITE of scientific interest could become a home after planning permission was extended.
The village hall, in Windmill Road, Fulmer, is set to be converted and refurbished into a home.
The hall and the associated buildings were once used as laboratories and offices but the site has been vacant for seven years.
The site is within the green belt and a Site of Special Scientific Interest lies to the south west.
The application is identical to a previous application which was approved, but permission was due to expire on October 4 as the work had not been carried out within a three-year time period.
The district council granted permission for the hall to be converted on September 9. The applicant now has another three years to start the work. STUDENTS heard a first-hand account from a survivor of the Holocaust.
The Beaconsfield School pupils heard the story of Harry Bibring, who was born in Vienna in 1925.
In his talk, Mr Bibring detailed his slow realisation as a 10-year-old boy that the Anschluss of Austria would lead to a steady stream of anti-Semitic laws that would alter his and his family’s life.
Students Poppy- Anne Forbes and Mason Kwiecien met Harry after the talk.
They visited Auschwitz earlier this year through the Lessons from Auschwitz Project run by the Holocaust Educational Trust.
