Wimbledon Park Hall was officially opened by Lord Ahmad on Saturday 26th April, 2014, at 3.30pm.
In his speech Lord Ahmad mentioned his involvement as a Ward Councillor in many of the meetings with the Council and developer over the years. He emphasised that there were always differences of opinion but that overall discussions were largely good humoured and relationships well maintained. He commended the tenacity of the developer and the WPRA in holding on to the original vision.
Lord Ahmad also mentioned that he felt privileged to make a speech recently (27th February) in the House of Lords on the matter of Community Assets and mentioned Wimbledon Park and the WPRA as an outstanding example of the Community and Council working together to build a community asset for the future.
