26 October 2017Shipton Methodist Chapel
For the Attention of Shipton Residents: The Methodist Chapel recently closed it's doors as a venue for hire for events in the village. The likely hood is that the York Methodist Circuit will sell the property for change of use. There is potential for the Chapel to remain as it is within the village if it is registered as an asset of community value. This would give the Parish Council the opportunity to buy the Chapel and to run it as a community venue. The Parish Council see limited value in this as there is already the Community Centre available as a venue in the village to hire. If however, the Parish Council receives sufficient indication from residents that there would be value in the Chapel remaining as a venue it will open this up to further consultation.
