County staff expect to complete their evaluation of responses to the Request for Expression of Interest early in February.
Their recommendation to Council for consideration at COTW and a later Council Meeting is imminent. Please be ready to support us with your attendance (and speaking up) at these meetings.

A note from Picton
We have a group of Tai Chi practitioners who use the town hall three times a week all year round. The participants vary in age from 45 to 70+ years and the average attendance runs around 12-16. Several of the group have been informed by their doctors to use Tai Chi to assist in improving their health. Approximately 6 to 8 people attend more than one of the classes. If this facility was taken away, I would expect council would provide an alternative venue in order that these people could continue to improve their health.

Our new page about the community groups who use the Picton Town Hall space has been updated to add new user profiles.
If you are a member of a user group that meets at Picton Town Hall (the old Fire Hall), let us know the who, what, when, etc.
If the space is lost, what’s your plan?
Coming soon – a new section of the site about the various groups that use space.
