“Having such a significant building as the Old Deanery available for a wide range of activities, would be an enormous boost to the work that so many of us have been doing to develop a connected and resilient community in this wonderful City of Wells” –
Emma Lefevre and Kirstie Harris, Directors, Project Factory CIC
“Appropriate, tasteful, respectful and stylish repurposing of a much loved and highly regarded building, providing public access to its many architectural and historical features. The chance to provide meeting spaces for the local community in a space which is beautiful and centrally positioned and which will undoubtedly become a hub for local community associations, clubs and other organisations”
– Paul Dickinson, The Rib, St Andrews Street, Wells.
“We have the unique opportunity to build a bright new future for Wells. Do we really want to turn down new community facilities, increased employment, a world class art gallery, increase in tourism all of which would build a renaissance in Wells, that is what will happen if the Old Deanery is sold to a private developer”
– Geraldine Peacock CBE, former Chair of The Charities Commission
