After all the uproar and arguments about Mareel, I don’t understand why the powers concerned have missed out on a good PR job.
I will point out that I have been sold on the idea right from the start and still think it is what we have needed for so long.
Forget the old diehards who probably think that the Sound Hall was a waste of money as the old tin hut was good enough.
Unfortunately I probably won’t be in it unless you organise an “old codgers night” but I think of my kids and their kids.
But why, after all that’s been said, didn’t they organise a few open days where all the new staff could show everyone around and see what we got for our money. You won’t win them all but you might have opened a few eyes.
