Scargill House was closed in the Summer of 2008, but plans are now well under way to reopen. The first step on that road has been the formation of The Scargill Movement, a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity, in order to negotiate a purchase of the House after it was placed on the open market.
In December of 2008 agreement towards a purchase was achieved, it is now hoped to have exchange of contracts by mid February.
Legal formalities are still being finalised, however completion of the sale is expected by the end of March 2009.
We are delighted to announce that The Scargill Movement was registered as a charity on 3rd February 2009. It will be a few days before the registration appears on the Charity commission website. Charity Registration number 1127838.
Your donation to support Scargill to be up and running again would be most welcome.
