I FEEL very strongly that Horsham’s old town hall in Market Square should be used by the local community. To achieve immediate use of all its facilities it should be handed over at a minimal rent or lease, undercutting all other existing community venues, to a local group who could issue shares in its future.
It could house lunchtime recitals, craft groups, a rehearsal area, dancing classes, clubs, etc. Possibly in time an outside lift could access the upper floor for an art gallery – the possibilities are endless. Cupboard space along both sides of the ground floor would be very useful below the windows.
