Whitleigh Big local partnership would like to thank everyone who took the time to fill out the recent postal survey about the development of a new community centre. Unfortunately we only had 174 responses and of those responses only 110 thought it was a good idea. Given the poor response the partnership made the difficult decision on Monday the 13th of January to cease the ‘whitleigh big local community centre’ project. A unanimous vote was carried by the partnership. As a result over the next few months we will be holding a series of community meetings to see what other priorities the community might have.
Again thank you to everyone who has put time and commitment into the project but sometimes we have to make the hard decisions if its not something a majority of the community identify as a need. If you are interested in anything we do at the Big local please come to our next meeting on the 10th of February at the scout hut. 6pm start.
regards Barry Meek
Chair of Whitleigh Big Local.
