Thank you for always giving a fair report concerning our town.
Last week’s report on the theatre was as you heard it. However, I do wish to make it perfectly clear to all members of the public that the town council supports our wonderful theatre 100 per cent.
The issue is with our grant aid system, and how it works fairly with each applicant who has to comply with the strict rules enforced by the council.
We have granted monies to the theatre over the past three years to the tune of £30,000.
This year, we refused a grant owing to the fact they have not adhered to our requirements.
All other applicants are treated in the same way. We will, of course, be happy to have the theatre apply next year.
Cllr Jeanette Warr, Hotham ward, Bognor Regis Town Council.
