BUSINESS AS USUAL AT THE
ADDED 22 JANUARY 2007
I would just like to answer a few of the enquiries Iíve been getting
recently about the activities at Knottingley Town Hall.
First can I say that at the Town Hall itís very much business as usual. It
sometimes takes a tragedy to get people into action and following the
death of Edwin Beckett, that is what has happened. New people have come on
board to fill the huge gap and have brought new ideas and ways of doing
things. However the long established regular activities are all going
strong: karate, tea dances, stained glass club, mother and toddler, womens
health group, childens dance, etc. There are also healthy bookings for
anniversaries, birthdays and the like. The building has space for groups
from 4 to over 100 so if you need a good local venue with or without a
licensed bar then ring myself, Glen Burton, on 01977 678895 or 01977
As a committee we are looking at improving the facilities within the Town
Hall and first we want to do some electrical work in the basement.
Yesterday (Sunday), myself and several others spent three hours sorting
out tons of rubbish that has accumulated over the years. Another reason
for looking at this first is that it was one of Edwinís priorities as well
so heíd be happy with the results. We havent finished yet but a great
start has been made.
We have a stock of unwanted plastic chairs that are surplus to
requirements now and rather than dump them we want to raise whatever money
we can for the Hall, so if anybody is after decent chairs for meeting
rooms etc., then give us a ring.
Along with Ferrybridge Community Centre we want to ensure that the area
continues to have two high quality community venues.
Incidentally, the money raised in lieu of flowers for Edwin Beckett stands
at a magnificent £1300.
