Well the writing is on the wall for the library building... it will either be leased out or sold.. I'm not sure which to be honest. The Library will be moved to the Town Hall.

Another great old building which should be for the benefit of of the townsfolk is going to be lost in the near future. Be it leased out or sold either way we the people will have no right to walk around the building as we should. Isn't it a good job money was spent on the buildings refurbishment a few years back... other wish it might not be up to standards.. or was that the plan all the time?
Will this mean that money will be spent on the Town Hall , work is surely needed to stop the stonework and brickwork from decaying any more.. the clock and bells need work and the removal of years of pigeon droppings in the bell tower needs to be done or so I have been informed.
Hyde like many of the towns in Tameside is a shadow of how it was... and are left to tick over on the scraps that not being spent on Ashton, or many (to many) councilors expenses.
