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.
First profile posted is for the Scottish Country Dancers
Monday is your opportunity to vote for council candidates whose platforms include maintaining Picton Town Hall – one of a decreasing number of locations available at reasonable cost for public and community programs – in public ownership for the public benefit.
Please support our efforts.
Recent additions to the web site include both of SPTH’s public meeting presentations, and a new section of the web site chronicling local press reporting of the issue since 2017.
Remember to attend the meeting(s) in your ward. Listen to the candidates. Ask questions. Save Picton Town Hall – no matter where you live.
