Public meeting to hear updates on campaign to save Silsden Town Hall

"There is a huge amount of goodwill to the building as a vibrant community centre and we must campaign to keep it."

Leading figures from the Friends met recently with the council for discussions.

And at this Thursday's (Dec 7) public meeting, in the town hall ballroom at 7pm, they will outline their proposals for taking on the running of the building from next April.

Campaigners say the premises play a vital part in community life and host a huge range of events, activities and groups.

Nearly 100 people braved atrocious weather to pack into the Kirkgate building for a public meeting.

Updates were provided on the battle to protect the premises, which was launched after cash-strapped Bradford Council announced plans to hive-off the running of seven halls across the district to community groups.

An application to make the hall a community asset, managed and run by the Friends, is ongoing.

The group has taken on charitable status with the aim of increasing its chances of obtaining high-level funding and has drawn-up a business plan in support of a bid to the council for a 125-year lease on the building.

Future plans put forward by the Friends' trustees include the re-introduction of a police contact point and a number of modifications to the hall, providing accessible public toilets for the town.

It is envisaged jobs could also be created.
