The old Health Centre continues to look rather sad, unoccupied and unloved. It is hoped that a decision can be reached soon as to how best this building might be re-adopted by the community, or razed to the ground.

A meeting was held a few weeks ago to explore some possible options, and approximately 25 interested residents attended. A range of ideas were explored. One of the overriding questions at the time was the rigidity of the building lease in terms of constraining its use "for health related purposes". It is hope that this issue can soon be clarified.

In the meantime, a second public meeting is being held at the Walter Rose Room on Tuesday 21st January, beginning at 8pm when it is hoped that an even larger group of enthusiastic volunteers will continue to explore the future of the Old Health Centre.

The process is being coordinated by Lindsey Poole who said: 'We are really keen to involve anyone with time to help take forward the discussions on what could be an exciting project. We would also love to hear from any one who feels they have skills to offer: from practical skills such as building or decorating through to financial management and catering experience.' The availability of such skills will shape the options we can entertain for the former Health Centre"

If you would like to be involved, or have some novel ideas for the building, you can contact Lindsey by email on: lindseypoole61@gmail.com.
