LIVE: Colchester Council votes to close Abbots Activity Centre
5:20pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
CAMPAIGNERS fighting to save Abbots Activity Centre will find out if their attempts have been successful this evening.
Politicians will make the final decision on whether the centre, which has 255 members over 50, will be closed.
Those supporting the closure state that the £74,000 running costs cannot be justified by the low membership number.
Meanwhile people who have been fighting to save it since 2006 believe it is vital to support elderly people living in the area.
The eight councillors who make up Colchester Council’s cabinet will make the final decision.
The meeting will be held in the Moot Hall at Town Hall, High Street, from 6pm.
Reporter Zoe Forsey is covering the meeting. See below for LIVE updates:
