Yes - it would be good if SydSoc concentrated on projects that unite us rather than divide us. As JMLF noted there isn't exactly a shortage of such brilliant new ideas ready to be championed.JMLF wrote:I just really think as a community far more good could come from time and efforts focussed elsewhere on functional projects which benefit not only a greater number of people but a wider range of people from the community.
This would both boost SydSoc's popularity amongst the community it is instituted to support and, even more importantly, likely have more chance of a succesful outcome. The Greyhound is the living example of this. Kudos all round.
If we want a 'gas museum', as Mosy suggests, to capture and instruct future generations on our heritage then The Livesey Hall or The Library would be great places to house it and give these institutions more value to the community and beyond.
It may be that a S106 grant extracted from Aldi or the freeholders could finance this. In other words the demolition could aid the memory ...
