A YOUTH club is being booted out of its Wivenhoe home at the end of the month by Essex County Council.

The Hub, along with several other community groups such as cinema club Moving Image, have to leave the Phillip Road centre by July 28.

Essex County Council has written to centre users saying it will be closing the building to groups while it awaits ministerial approval allowing the authority to sell it to the community.

Centre users have welcomed plans to allow the community to use the building permanently but question why they have to be locked out while the process is on-going.
