Despite an effective campaign from Labour Councilors, the Conservative led council finally decided on 27 January to go ahead and close all 9 of the Centres they had originally planned to close. The decision was subsequently called in by a number of Labour representatives on the grounds that there was insufficient objective criteria to decide which Centres to close. Remarkably Labour won the vote and the decision has been sent back to Cabinet. It looks likely that Cabinet will simply rubber-stamp their own decision, but we are hopeful that campaigners will gather to make their feelings known on the steps of Endeavour House, once more, on Tuesday 27th at 10am.
