HORSHAM Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society was joined by members of the Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre Joint User Group in the Carfax on Saturday (April 14).

HAODS performers were there to promote their latest production of The Mikado at the Capitol Theatre this week and the Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre members were there to hand out leaflets updating the public on the campaign to keep sporting and leisure facilities up and running at Broadbridge Heath.

Their joint presence in the Carfax was particularly meaningful because HAODS are based at Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre.

It’s there that they keep all their costumes and props and rehearse for their upcoming productions.

Members of HAODS are fearful that if they cannot continue in their home at the Leisure Centre, their very existence will be in jeopardy.

Consultants appointed by Horsham District Council to look into the usage and future of the Leisure Centre are due to report to the Council next Monday (April 23).

The report will contain possible options for the future of the Leisure Centre.

HAODS and the Joint User Group wait with bated breath to see what those options are and hope that one or more of them will be acceptable to all concerned.
