The idea for FROGS came out of a public meeting on 12th July 2011 and the commitment to keep the old school building, opened in 1854, for use by the local community. 60 people attended the meeting, shared ideas about future use and 8 people have formed a Steering Group to progress the project. The first steps will be the adoption of a constitution, the appointment of officers and the start of serious fund-raising. The market value of the building could be in the region of £200,000 (see the blog under 'Valuation')..
The school building will be vacated in the autumn by the Duke of Norfolk CE Primary School moving to the single site at Royle Avenue, Glossop.
