Thank you for speaking up

May we through your letters page express our sincere thanks to Ms Jeanette Stone for having the courage to speak up for the Blue Flash Music Trust at the council meeting on May 15 when the future of Horsham’s old town hall was being debated.

It takes a lot of courage to speak out on just such occasions, and although we knew nothing of Ms Stone’s question, and her supplementary question, until we read through the recently published minutes for the meeting of May 15, we found it very encouraging, and further evidence that there are many supporters of the trust who would prefer to see the town hall used as a community space, particularly in the year when the trust celebrates ten years since it was founded in April 2002.

We should also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who are endeavouring and working behind the scenes to support the trust in their many different and varied ways.

ROBERT MAYFIELD

Blue Flash Music Trust, East Street, Horsham
