Plans for Port Royal: BREAKING NEWS: a community bid for the Drill Hall launched > "Sidmouth Sunrise Drill Hall"

There has been considerable build up and interest in the prospect of a community bid for the Drill Hall over the last weeks:
Futures Forum: Plans for Port Royal: a community bid for the Drill Hall > raising awareness during Folk Week

Last night's Town Council meeting did not have this on the agenda as such:

But the issue was raised by members of the public and heated debate ensued amongst members.
And it was pointed out several times that it is now a year on since the Neighbourhood Plan steering group produced clear parameters for any bids:

In the midst of this, a specific community bid process has been launched:

RECENT ACTIVITY
Gillian Mitchell shared a Page.
Hi everyone I would like to introduce you to a brand new Facebook page that has been launched to back a community bid to buy the Drill Hall, engage in a complete restoration programme, and launch it as a community venue.
Sidmouth Sunrise would love people to get involved and make this a real community effort. So please do visit the page where we will post details of particular skills that we are looking for as the bid progresses. And of course we also just need you to register your support 🙂
Would also love to read your memories of this special place.
