Interest is growing as the word is getting around.

We have been working closely with a group of students on the Access to Further Education course at Coleg Powys/NPTC Group.

This student group took the Market Hall restoration project as their curriculum theme over the first term, using the Market Hall History document as the basis of their history research project. The resulting creative written work, photographs and sketches were used to produce artwork for banners and a Market Hall display in the corridor of the College.

Students also worked with ourselves to produce a Market Hall Time Capsule, containing items that they felt represented 'The community of Newtown in 2014/15' an activity that proved very popular with both students and staff. The group was invited back to the Market Hall to bury the capsule themselves and hang their banner on the High Street end of the Market Hall, bringing to an end a really successful project that was covered by the local press.
