Reservations about Town Hall
It was good to read that the Crieff BID will be using the old Town Hall, thus saving it for posterity.
A most useful idea to preserve a building. I do not think, however, that a mere 17 hours per week is sufficient access for the Crieff Monuments that are in the basement. Surely PKC, who I believe are the legal custodians of the monuments, cannot be happy at such limited access especially when BID seems to want volunteers for any further access.
Surely the Campus is the most appropriate home for the monuments.
The idea of the old Town Hall being used for meetings is interesting but possibly flawed. If the upper room is used by private groups that is not a problem.
However any events that are open to the public and / or receive public funds must provide access for the less able.
Having had my mobility impacted by recent cancer surgery I know that I would find the stairs to the upper room difficult. All council tax payers are entitled to equal access to the publicly funded events.
Nevertheless the news about BID coupled to the successes of the CCT show that the town is on the up and up and may one day have another supermarket!
