Dear Adrian Essex

Thank you so much for taking the time to sign the Save Hornsey Town Hall’ petition. We wanted to let you know that we sent it to the leader and Cabinet of Haringey Council on Tuesday when it passed 1000 signatures.
You can read the letter that accompanied the petition here. It’s long but we wanted to spell out exactly why Haringey Council should be considering Community Asset Transfer as the best way to safeguard community use and access in the long term.
The campaign is by no means over… Our next target is to reach 2,200 signatures which should entitle us to trigger a full council debate on the issue. Please help us by forwarding, sharing and tweeting about the campaign and getting everyone you know to sign the petition. #saveHTH
Many hundreds of visitors enjoyed the Open House at the Town Hall this weekend and three of us were there to represent the campaign. The photos below show the three in situ and the Asset of Community Value certificate in place on a Town Hall wall.
For more info on our campaign for community ownership of the town hall and square, please visit our website and join the Facebook group.
If you’d like to take an active part in the campaign we are especially looking for:
  • someone to cast an eye over the business case with a view to improving it
  • a lawyer who could give some pro bono hours, especially if you understand property and/or OJEU
  • someone to make our Twitter and Instagram accounts humdingers
    • someone who understands buildings, an architect perhaps, or a surveyor or conservation expert
  • community and arts groups who want to join the campaign
                    then please get in touch with us at HTHAppreciationSociety@gmail.com
Many thanks

The HTHAS team
