Campaigners in the small town of Wiveliscombe are trying to get access to their old town hall which has been boarded up by the Co-op for the past 50 years. The supermarket has a store below the old town hall but doesn't use the large rooms above.
It has been reluctant to allow townspeople access in the past but after months of negotiations that might be about to change. The town hall is right in the centre of the tiny town, and dominates the square.
