Old build­ing is new place for wed­dings

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

ONE of Ash­ford’s old­est build­ings will now be used for wed­dings and other events.

Boys Hall, in South Willes­bor­ough, is a Grade II listed build­ing and dates back to be­tween 1616 and 1632.

Last Wed­nes­day, Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil’s plan­ning com­mit­tee granted per­mis­sion for the build­ing to be used for civil cer­e­monies, meet­ings and cor­po­rate events.

A max­i­mum of 50 guests will be per­mit­ted and open­ing hours will be from 10am to 11.30pm Sun­day to Thurs­day and 10am to mid­night on Fri­days and Satur­days.

The ap­pli­ca­tion had been amended from one re­jected in Novem­ber when plans were for 120 guests and in­cluded use of the grounds with a mar­quee.

The re­vised plans do not in­clude use of the grounds ex­cept for tak­ing pho­to­graphs and park­ing. No mu­sic is to be played out­side.
