|Open forum to help restore Thornaby Town Hall||AN OPEN forum to discuss the £2m restoration and reopening of Thornaby Town Hall will take place this month.|
Vision Sense, a specialist agency in access and heritage, will be holding the forum on Wednesday, 23 March, at the Five Lamps Organisation on Eldon Street, Thornaby.
The forum will take peoples' views on the running of the building and form the basis of how schools, colleges, voluntary and community groups and individuals will access the building and its facilities.
Susie Rutherford from Vision Sense, said: "We would like to hear from anyone who is interested in the local heritage of Thornaby, works with learning groups across the Borough, or would simply like to become involved in the forum."
Stockton Council is currently compiling a funding package to allow the restoration to proceed. This will include bids to the Heritage Lottery Fund, Tees Valley Single Programme and European Structural Funds. If these succeed, Thornaby Town Hall, a significant area of which and the adjacent houses of 3, 5, 7 and 9 Mandale Road will be open to the public to learn about the heritage and history of Thornaby.
Ward Councillors, local organisations and the local MP have all played a significant part in developing the proposals.
Stockton Council's Cabinet Member for Development and Regeneration, Bob Cook, said: "This bid brings the proposal of great news for Thornaby as a whole. If it succeeds, not only will the town hall be restored to its former glory but also local interest groups and members of the public will be able to come along and learn more about the rich heritage of Thornaby."
The forum is free and open to all, at the Five Lamps Centre on Eldon Street, Thornaby, on Wednesday, 23 March, at 2.30pm or for more information call Susie Rutherford at Vision Sense on 0845 1080553 or email email@example.com
