Church would be a great arts venue

Copy of an email sent to Councillor Paul Diviani at Devon County Council, East Devon District Council, and the Exmouth Journal.
The Exmouth Choral Society gave a very successful concert on Saturday, May 3, in Tower St Methodist Church, Exmouth.
It was very well received and many people suggested that the church would make a very good permanent venue for music and drama.
The acoustics are excellent, the location is central and accessible, even for the less able.
The church would be suitable for many other activities, such as meetings, talks, rehearsals for orchestra and choirs, etc.
There are very few facilities for performers in the town, and as the building is up for sale we wondered if it would be possible for the council to purchase it – could lottery funding be available?
