I FEEL very strongly that the Sub Rooms and forecourt should remain in public property and not be sold to a private company.

I understand there is a trust offering to buy it for the people and I would urge the council to support this bid.

I for one would be willing to put time and energy into keeping the Subs and forecourt fully available for public use, day and night.

It has been a big part of my life, I have enjoyed countless exhibitions, dances, shows, music, and events there for over 50 years and would lie in front of a bulldozer to save it!

Please all of you (I am copying to other councillors) understand how crucial it feels to many of us (who vote for you) to Keep the Subs public.
