Surrey CC are seeking to save costs by planning to close four youth & community centres in the Spelthorne area (see list below). These centres host not only youth nights but special needs groups, sports clubs, a spiritualist church, a Baptist church and a nursery, thus playing a key role in local communities. It is a very short sighted and rushed plan, which will hit the wider local community in Ashford and Staines with fewer facilities available for youngsters and other age groups.
YOU can help by e-mailing/writing to the address below and contacting the local press.

Please sign the petition –

If you wish to get involved further, please use the contact details at the foot of this letter.
Save Our Centres patron RUSSELL GRANT

Mr. N. Skellett, Surrey County Council, Room 250, County Hall, Kingston upon Thames, KT1 2DN by 17 March.
