Community group set to take over Abbots Activity Centre in Colchester
A COMMUNITY organisation is set to take over a doomed activity centre.
Colchester Council is shutting Abbots Activity Centre on October 25 to save an annual subsidy of £74,000.
But now it has been revealed a deal is set to be struck with a community organisation to take it over on a year lease.
Colchester Council leader Anne Turrell said the contract had gone to the group's solicitors to be signed.
She said details of the group could not be made public until the deal had been signed.
But she added: "I can guarantee it will be for community use."
