Much loved building
On Sunday 9th January 1966 I was horrified to hear that Hove Town hall was burning. It was a much loved wonderful old building that had played a part in my life. I had a personal connection with the bulding as I worked at the council nursery growing plants for display in the lord mayors parlour and for all the big functions held at the town hall.
Our department was involved very regularly to deliver lorry loads of plants which were put on display around the stage for various events and functions. At the time of the fire I could not get near the Town Hall; as it was burning there was chaos. I went back the next morning to get some photographs which you can see here.
