Dear Sir,
Earlier in 2019 you ran an editorial piece on the waste ground between the fire station and the nursing home on Central Avenue, highlighting the local congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses had purchased this land for a new Kingdom Hall, as they move from the rear of Allington Road on the town, to this new plot. The new site will also accommodate the Ferryhill congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses, as they will now share it with us.
That project is now complete thanks to over 400 volunteers from as far south as Wales and as far north as Glasgow, east Kilbride, who came to assist in its build, it was all accomplished by volunteers, who have worked tirelessly since we broke ground on 19th August and many more  have given their time and energy, some as old as 80 assisted, some made tea in the canteen, many made cakes and pastries and provided other forms of nourishment for the workers, all at their own expense – what a marvellous display of giving in the local community as they demonstrated the love for our God Jehovah.
We are now pleased to share with you an Open Day on 4th January from 10.00am, with all the local community, to view this remarkable project which is now complete and we invite the public to come along, where we will be happy to show you around and answer any questions you may have.
