5 Centres to close in South West!

Many of you will have already spotted that 5 of the 6 Community Centres about to be closed are in the South West area of the city:

A complete list of all the community facilities in the city can be found here, but it really is worth clicking on each of the individual links - as above - to see the range of services provided at each of the 5 threatened Centres on this side of the city.

Removal of all of these services will undoubtedly create a short-term financial saving, but I'll (sadly) safely predict that such drastic action will store up really serious long-term problems for the local communities around these Centres, which will certainly cost the city more money in the long-term.

It's yet more proof, if ever it were needed, that the current SNP/Lib-Dem Coalition know the cost of everything but the value of nothing :-(

I have a better idea, lets close them all and refund the tax payer.

Thanks for the comment - but think we'll just need to disagree on that one!
