The Friends have no access to, or control of, the building, which is currently only partially in use, as a slot machine lounge by Merkur Casino UK.
We understand the freehold has been sold to Ruach City Church from Hold Land South East; the headlease held by Mecca Bingo (Top Rank) is being cancelled; and Merkur’s lease amended. These changes are not currently showing at the Land Registry.

Andrew has been involved in a number of local community organisations over the years. In the past he has been a Trustee and organiser of the ‘Streatham Festival’ where, amongst other things, he was responsible for a number of music events on the common, and three ‘World Sounds at St Leonards’ events at the Church which attracted huge critical acclaim.
