Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
There is an excellent article on the front page of the Ham and High about Hornsey Town Hall this week (2/7/15) which sets out an emerging community position. New (to Crouch End) reporter Hannah McGrath has interviewed Chris Currer (director of the Crouch End Festival) whose statement neatly sums up the ambitions that Crouch End, and indeed the whole of North London , should have for the building. Chris is part of the Hornsey Town Hall Appreciation Society (HTHAS) - if you share his views on the possible future of the Town Hall do join the HTHAS Facebook group.
I think it also worth commenting on the very positive statement from Haringey, which reads
“We welcome the nomination to list Hornsey Town Hall and square as an asset of community value, and we share local people’s enthusiasm for the Town Hall site.
“We would welcome viable bids from any community group and we look forward to seeing a range of exciting and innovative proposals that show how the future of the Town Hall could be safeguarded and community access guaranteed.”
Well said Haringey.
Perhaps less worthy is the slightly prurient reference to the Hornsey Town Hall Arts Centre logo. To me it looks like a 2-dimensional representation of our iconic 3-dimensional building with a tower and two wings, made up of the letters HTH. Everything a logo should be.
