Hi, I may be wrong, but thought a grant was applied for and paid, to renovate this beautiful Hall so it could be open to the public... as in on a daily basis. I understand the Grant funders were expecting it to be open for the public as a condition of the money being funded? To benefit the whole town and not just one organisation? But I'm not certain.... maybe one of the Trustees can tell us the exact conditions and supply documents to verify either way please? Its such a terrible shame it cannot be enjoyed by tourists and visitors on a daily basis. I believe the cash was to make it possible for all to enjoy as a right. Kindest regards Helen.
