BUSINESS AS USUAL AT THE
TOWN HALL

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 672585.

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.
