Building begins

Preparation work has begun on the site of the new library & auditorium which will be built during 2019-21. At the corner of Grange Road and West Road, it will provide an auditorium on the ground floor – with flexible space including tiered seating – and then a state-of-the-art library on the first and second floors. The total cost is expected to be £12.6m, and more than £11m of that has been raised already. The main contractor will be the Barnes company.

There’s more information here: We’re grateful to the alumni and friends who have made contributions to enable this important project to start, and we’ll be providing frequent updates during the construction.
