Councillors in Moreton West and Saughall Massie are writing to those affected by the proposal to close Girtrell Court, asking for support to set up a ‘Friends’ group that would fight for the centre to remain open.
Councillor Chris Blakeley said: “As we have seen with previous campaigns, the danger can be that those who oppose the closure of a facility don’t speak with a single voice and are then subject to ‘divide and rule’ tactics from the Town Hall.
“By setting up a Friends Group, comprising people who use the centre, their carers and families, as well as staff and trade unions, I believe we can demonstrate to the Town Hall how important this Centre is – not least for the 140 people who depend on it.”
“While the Town Hall has chosen to hide behind ‘data protection’, they have agreed to circulate a letter from the three councillors to service users and staff. I’m really keen to hear from anyone who receives our letter, either giving their own views on the closure plan or who wish to volunteer and help us set up the Friends.” The letter to service users and staff can be read by clicking HERE
