I was down town, but I did not go into the Market Hall.
Will have a look in there tomorrow.
Looks like there is going to be some kind of exhibition....maybe the seats will be back once the exhibition(or whatever) is over.
Nice pics Jen.

Re: in the market hall today

That's really odd, I was in the Market Hall a week or so ago and the benches were there....

you could always be run by bradford where they shut the toilets up in keighley market a few years ago. seats are a help but toilets are the most important for me nowadays.

There's a story doing the rounds on Facebook that the benches will not be put back & that their removal is to make room for a bar to be installed which will be used in conjunction with all the events being planned around the town square

That would not surprise me at all with our useless council.

Re: in the market hall today

There is a licensed bar in Chorley Market - in fact it occupies two stalls - called The Bob Inn. It is only open when the market hall is open.

Still miss the seats in the market hall, I understand the market hall is making a loss of £110,000 a year, and the valuable space where the benches were can be put to use to reduce the annual loss,
But I understand that deck chairs cloaked in colourful adverts will be provide somewhere in the market hall
I can’t see myself being able to arise from such a contraption and wonder if any Red Cross staff will be employed to assist

Thats the whole point deckchairs are no way suitable for many elderly people or disabled for that matter, this perfectly demonstrates to all but the simple minded how USELESS our council has become at figuring things out imho.
