HTHCT Trustee Vacancies

Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust, the buildings preservation trust that has been working with the London Borough of Haringey to secure a sustainable, if rather limited and somewhat unwelcome, future for Hornsey Town Hall, currently (December 2016) has vacancies for at least two trustees.

We are looking for people, preferably local Haringey residents, who will introduce new skills and experiences to complement and extend our existing expertise.  You can read brief biographies of the current trustees here trustee_biographies , of former LibDem councillor Elliott, and of Natan Doron who helps maintain Jackson's Lane Community Centre.

We would benefit from gaining skills in the following areas: finance; historic buildings conservation and regeneration; arts operation; property law; understanding what the results of consultation mean, and spotting a good thing when they see one.

The Board meets at least every other month and we also attend regular meetings with the London Borough of Haringey, with whom we entered into a confidentiality agreement to take part in the recent OJEU procurement for Hornsey Town Hall.

If you are interested, please email hornseytownhalltrust@gmail.com with a CV and covering letter outlining your skills and saying why you are interested in joining Hornsey Town Hall Creative Trust and how you might contribute to the future of Hornsey Town Hall.

Deadline: 31 January 2017

I'm not sure they're running the asylum, but, like the local councillors, the HTH Creative Trust appear to have sold the Town Hall for a mess of pottage. Which puts me in mind of another quote -

"You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately... Depart, I say; and let us have done with you."

Oliver Cromwell, on the Hornsey Town Hall procurement, April 1653

at the last public meeting in the Town Hall foyer almost 2 years ago the Creative Trust made a rare public appearance and were boo'ed as I remember. Then and now 99.9% of Crouch Enders - even those following the Town Hall story -  would not have heard of the Creative Trust, would not know the members of the Trust and would be shocked to learn that they are representing the community in this very important sell off.  

The whole question of who represents the community needs a thorough debate and thrashing out.

Time for CT to come out of the shadows again and face the music at another public meeting.  What exactly have they achieved and what are their plans for their own future?
