Save Glasbury Centre Campaign Fails

01 Jun 2015

The planned closure of Glasbury Activity Centre in Wales will go ahead despite a school-organised petition and campaign to save the centre.

Glasbury House Activity Centre

The Centre has welcomed generations of school children since 1963 but it will now be put up for sale by the London Borough of Redbridge in August this year.

Last night, councillors voted to uphold the decision and sell the centre despite the petition organised by South Woodford's Churchfields Junior School.

MP for Ilford North, Wes Streeting said  “I am sorry we had to make this decision but there are harder decisions to come with the context of local government funding in Redbridge.“The decision was not taken because of the quality of experience, it was made because of funding cuts.”
