Blindcraft closure?

At today's Council Meeting, I think its safe to predict that the potential closure of 'Blindcraft' (the full report is here) will be the most politically contentious issue ...

... there's no doubt the Council is facing a challenging financial settlement this year, but that doesn't make it any better - or worse - a time to potentially close such a facility.

Any final decision has to be based on the long-term prospects, and not taken with just the next couple of years in mind ... and surely we must remember that the true mark of any City is how it relates to those who are most vulnerable and in most need of assistance?
