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.

User Profiles – Update

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?

A note from Cressy:

The Picton Town Hall is a beautiful building, and what makes it most beautiful is that it belongs to the community it serves. It would only be another jewel in the County’s crown to keep this building for the people who use as they see fit. It is already a hub of town life and it should stay that way; the uses to which is is put could be expanded.


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.

All Candidates Meetings – October 11
