Whitfield Tabernacle is a famous historical building built in 1741 which until 1989 was used by Kingswood residents for a range of community activities. The site includes the graveyard, Chapel House and Masters Church. A group of local councillors have come together with interested colleagues to work together with South Gloucestershire Council, the landowner and CVS South Gloucestershire to secure the future of the Tabernacle site. The vision is to develop the facilities in Kingswood for local people.
During February Southern Brooks undertook a community consultation, to find out what the people of Kingswood would like to see on the Tabernacle site. We had a great response, with 53 people completing our survey, and lots of ideas and conversations about this historic site.
We are now sending our findings over to the local authorities. Watch this space for further updates!
