Proposed Town Hall -- A public meeting was
held in the Church School, Guiseley, on Thursday evening to consider the
propriety of erecting a building for general purposes in which all
inhabitants could assemble on common ground.
There was a fair attendance.
Mr Abram Moon presided and Mr Frizell
acted as secretary.
The meeting was attended by Mr J P Brown, Mr Edmund Gill,
Mr Richard Whitehead, Mr John Tempest, Mr Jas. Priestley, Mr Adam Earle and
A committee was formed to solicit subscriptions and report as to
eligible sites at another meeting.
The idea of a Town Hall in this
thriving village is causing quite a sensation in the neighbourhood and is
another pleasing feature of public spirit to meet the requirements of the age.
Guiseley has for many years past shown itself equal to the various improvements
of the times and now that a railway is passing through it the inhabitants are
determined that its name shall still further be honourably recorded.
Mr M W
Thompson of Park Gate is with the movement, so that there is every reason to
predict that it will succeed".
