30 day centre campaigners celebrated victory at Swinton British Legion on Saturday 11th February. It was a great result but campaigners are all too aware that the centres are only reprieved for a year and there is concern that new and expensive arangements for transport may reduce visits to the centres.
The campaign ha started to save SEN school transport, and everyone took a SAC newsletter and copies of a letter to Cllr. Merry. A resolution of support was passed for Homecare workers who are campaigning against privatisation of their service. There was also a suggestion that successful day centre campaigners link up with local youth centres as the Youth Service faces massive but unspecified cuts.
There was a call for everyone to attend the lobby of the Labour group on Monday 13th February at the Civic Centre, 5.00 pm, and the demo at the full council on Wednesday 15th February, from 8.00 am.
