The thought of closing and demolishing Crosfield Hall makes me wonder if the Romsey leaders know what a mistake they are making. This hall is a part that makes Romsey what it is.

A quiet country town that so many people want to visit because of its uniqueness.

Having sat there for two hours last night and studied the robust construction, an adequate kitchen, adequate toilet facilities, with off rooms for minor parties, and thinking what a shame.

If it is to make a car park for the local supermarket I’m sure it’s not necessary, they seem overloaded with unused space.

The people who hire the hall, and there are several, are going to lose a useful venue. They will have to find another accommodation.

You might ask what does the writer want to get involved? Living only eight miles away, and find a useful village like town, and having attended U3A meetings and a wedding, have taken the building to heart.

Please reconsider before the site is like the one next door is turned into flats.
