'It's a big part of my life'
This hall is everything to the people on the Nunsthorpe. It is a second home for a lot of people – somewhere to go where they will be welcomed, can feel safe and see a friendly face.
People that have come to the centre over the last nine years have learnt a lot here. Kids who couldn't dance a step have performed on the stage at regular concerts. People have learned skills and got to know people that they wouldn't have without this hall.
When I first came here, I was quite a young mum with one child and now I have my third on the way. It is a big part of my life and it's sad to see what has happened. I've got friends here and I have no idea where we will meet now. For nine years there has been somewhere to go, seven days a week, and now that has been lost.
It is such a terrible thing to see it looking like this, all empty. I'm that upset and angry about it that I can't really put it into words. I just hope that when the church take it back, they open it for the community again. This place needs somewhere for people to go.
