These plaques are all that remains of Weymouth's much loved Sidney Hall.

Dorset Echo:

They're the only remaining bits of the beautiful Sidney Groves Memorial Hall, probably better known just as the Sidney Hall to most people.

Dorset Echo:

The hall was where Asda now stands. It had multiple uses over the years as a dance hall, roller rink, school and even a military hospital.

Dorset Echo:

There was a hall within the Sidney Hall which used to host musical acts.

Sue Hogben has many great memories of fun times roller skating there.

She said: "It was usually on the end of a long line going round and I was the first one to fly off into the barrier!

"The hall used to host bingo, dances, armed forces and boxing matches going back even earlier."

In the 1970s the hall was thriving with regular bingo nights, where a team of Rothmans cigarettes sales girls would do promotions. On Saturday nights dances would be held.

Come the 1980s the council had sold the hall and it was leased to the government Land Registry as a storage area for Dorset land records.

Dorset Echo:

In the mid 1980s Carter Commercial developments was looking for a supermarket site and the hall was demolished. A Gateway supermarket was built on the site, which then became Asda.
