It’s over a fortnight since the impending closure of the Cambridge Hotel was first mentioned here. Since then it’s been quite widely discussed – not least by the Eye – on Facebook. But, it seems that not everyone has heard that the hotel is shutting its doors this weekend. The future of the building is unknown. Suggestions that it be designated as an Asset of Community Value – which would give local people six months to find a way of saving the building – haven’t taken root very much, though it takes just twenty one people to band together and submit a request to the borough council for an ACV status to be confirmed.
Sadly, unless the situation changes, one of Camberley’s original buildings may well disappear. So, here are photographs of what it looked like yesterday, in its final opening hours. (Strangely, the building displays a banner extending to 10th July, but this may not mean very much.)
