We need your letter of support...
I am writing to you on behalf of St John’s House Trust, a registered charity formed by local Bridgend residents in 2012 with aim of buying St Johns House, Newcastle Hill Bridgend. The Trust's aim is to restore this Grade II* listed medieval townhouse to enable it to become a local and national focal point serving public, education and business uses, making a positive contribution to the surrounding community and to the town of Bridgend.

The house is currently owned by the Old BuildingsPreservation & Restoration Trust, St Albans. There have been several previous attempts to purchase the building and save it from being turned into residential use, which would mean it being lost for viewing by the public.
In 2011 a local group of residents were shocked to learn of the current owner's intention to turn the property into flats and decided to form a committee to purchase the building. As a result, St John’s HouseTrust (Bridgend), a registered charity (Reg. No. 1147340), was formed in May 2012.
St John’s House Trust (Bridgend) is committed to purchasing St John’s House and making the property available for viewing, to inform the general public and providing an educational provision for the young people of Bridgend and its surrounds. We aim to provide a focal point in the local neighbourhood to meet and respond to the growing needs of ‘Community’ in the area. We will offer a building that can be used by the public to meet in a safe, secure and fun environment making a positive contribution to the community.
In Bridgend there are four Grade II* listed buildings, Newcastle Castle, Newcastle House, St Iltyds Church and St John’s House, all within the Newcastle Conservation area, we see St John’s House becoming a ‘hub’ for the history in this area.
