MEMBERS of Goole area Jehovah’s Witnesses are looking forward to moving into a new home as work moves on apace on a new £380,000 Kingdom Hall.

The shell and the roof are complete on the site on Manor Road, Old Goole, with hopes high the new building will be ready to move into by the end of May or early June.

Derek Payne, an Elder said: “We had 250 of our brothers on site working on the building and the whole shell and roof went up in less than a week.”

“The carpet is down now and this week we are putting the chairs in.

“The car park is block paved but we need to finish the entrance to the site and put up the railings around it.”

He explained that the new meeting place had become necessary thanks to a steadily increasing congregation, which now stood at between 60 and 70 members.

“We’ve outgrown our hall in Estcourt Street in Goole, which was built in the 1970s. That has now been sold and the money has meant we have been able to pay for the land in Old Goole,” said Mr Payne.

The rest of the money, for materials and labour has been secured via a loan but will, he says, all be raised within the church community.

An open day is to be arranged for members of the community to view the new hall, about which details will follow.
