Plans for Port Royal: a community bid for the Drill Hall > "Sidmouth Sunrise Drill Hall" campaign looking for help

A community bid has been launched on-line:
Futures Forum: Plans for Port Royal: BREAKING NEWS: a community bid for the Drill Hall launched > "Sidmouth Sunrise Drill Hall"

And social media is running very enthusiastically with it:
Sidmouth Sunrise Drill Hall bid - Home | Facebook

The campaign has its own Facebook pages - and is looking to take things further: 


Let’s have a piece of good news ðŸ™‚
We are very pleased to report that our survey demonstrates the quality of the original build of the Drill Hall and.....
.......restoration is easily within reach.......
Naturally it has quite a bit that needs to be done, but the fundamental structure is looking good.
Hoorah!
So let’s get this going. We need help with the following things:
** people who can help us to set up a public meeting to get the community together and discuss and share plans
** someone who would be able to turn our draft website into an active site
** people who can help to research topics. Really anyone who has a bit of time to trawl the internet and come up with solutions to any challenges that we might raise from time to time ðŸ™‚ we’d like to build a small research team that we can call on
** recommendations for local contractors to help price the restoration work

Mary Walden-Till

Mary Walden-Till While Sidmouth Sunrise has to have its own survey in order to move forward, I would like to let you know that there is also another one which is publicly available. In collaboration with The Vision Group for Sidmouth, Sidmouth Drill Hall Rescue commissioned a report from a Structural Engineer. You can create an account to read it at https://drillhall-rescue.historic-sidmouth.uk/structural.... This does not sign you up to the newsletter or commit you to anything. I wish to stress that Gillian and I are working to merge these two campaigns into one. We are NOT in competition ðŸ˜Š

The Drill Hall does indeed seem to be in good condition:

This is surely all about 'regeneration':
