about us 2013
Hilton Hall Community Association is a Not-For-Profit Social Enterprise with Constituted Charitable Aims. We are a Registered Company Limited by Guarantee without Share Capital (Companies House Registration No. 06838077). This Social Enterprise was set up with the sole aim of 'Saving Hilton Hall' from permanent closure and to secure its place in the community for future generations to enjoy. This is reflected in Article 3 of our Constitution (below).
Article 3 of our Memorandum of Association states our Objects: "To further or benefit the residents of Lanesfield and the neighbourhood without distinction of sex, sexual orientation, race or political, religious or other opinions, by associating together in a common effort to advance education and to provide facilities in the interests of social welfare, for sport, recreation and leisure time occupation with the objective of improving the conditions of life for the residents . . . "
We achieved this by taking on a long-term lease on Hilton Hall and to operate independently of the Wolverhampton City Council for the benefit of 'our local community'. This is an excellent working example of what the UK Government refer to as the 'Big Society', where local people (Volunteers) have taken on a major community commitment to save local services and amenities through a Social Interest Community Group. All of the funding, finances, materials & physical resources has been generated by a small team of local volunteers. Namely; Keith Jones, Debbie Cox & Heather Manser. Supported and helped along the way by members of their immediate family & friends. We are a Not-For-Profit Community biased Social Enterprise company whose sole aim is to ensure the survival of Hilton Hall.
The aim of this web site is to provide a vehicle to promote and raise public awareness of all issues relating to Hilton Hall Community Centre and Hilton Hall Playing Fields. Also; to offer a contact point and web-interface with the local community and with our clients, patrons / sponsors, supporters, volunteers, funding agents and all other interested parties. Please check-out our photographs (above menu link) to see our progress and we look forward to you re-visiting our site again soon.
We hope that you find our web site informative and user friendly. We invite and welcome your feedback . . . with this in mind; please feel free to view the individual pages via the above Menu Links and please do not hesitate to get in touch via our Contact Link.
Hilton Hall of Lanesfield was saved from permanent closure by a small group of local residents / community volunteers who took up the challenge to commit their own time, money and resources to take over the responsibility for Repairing, Refurbishing, Running and Developing' this Vital Community Asset for the benefit of present and future users & hirers of Hilton Hall. This has fallen onto the shoulders of three individuals; The Directors: Keith Jones, Debbie Cox & Heather Manser. All of this work & process was started quite some time before the Government's Localisation Bill came into being and just goes to show that if enough people care about something strongly enough - they can do incredible things. Please Check-out our Photographs page to see our Progress. More information & history coming soon!
