1. To purchase the building so it can be openly enjoyed and
appreciated by the populace of Bridgend, and those from
further a field.
2.To sustain the property it will be necessary to create a lively
usable space for as many appropriate activities as possible.
Ranging through, but not exclusively including, education,
history, music/live performance, display of 2 & 3 dimensional
arts and more general social functions also.
That the building does not become just a tourist attraction frozen in
aspic but again becomes a focus for and a living part of the community
St John’s House is the oldest property in Bridgend and it is appropriate
to use it to bring history to life.
The trust wants to provide local schools with a facility in which they
can bring their pupils to experience the property now and what it may
have been like in the past. The Education/Events Co-ordinator would
have responsibility for liaising with schools to pass on the knowledge
required. The experience for the young people should be fun and as
participatory as possible.
To make the project viable the committee recognises that it must be
sustainable and intends to utilise the building, in a considerate way, to
generate income to ensure the aims of the trust can be met in the
future and to ensure the upkeep of the property.
