Old building is new place for weddings
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.
