Celebrating Dan Williamson, our founder & former Chair

At our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in November, we said a fond farewell to our former Chair, Dan Williamson, who stepped down from the Board of Trustees.

Dan was one of the founder members of Stretford Public Hall, leading the community campaign to save the building back in 2013.

In more recent years, Dan served as Chair of our Board of Trustees, overseeing the hall’s transition from a volunteer-run project, to the current organisation with over 20 employees.

He led the hall through the ballroom renovation and capital investment from 2019-2021, and steered us through the anxious and challenging times of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dan ended his term as Chair in December 2022, and served a final year on the Board this year, before stepping down at November’s AGM.

On behalf of everyone involved in Stretford Public hall, a huge thanks to Dan for almost a decade of dedicated commitment!
