Tearful farewell to Abbots Activity Centre
7:00am Saturday 26th October 2013 in News
MORE than 50 members paid a tearful farewell to Abbots Activity Centre.
A farewell lunch was held at the over-fifties centre in Ladbrook Drive on Friday, followed by an afternoon playing a bingo-style game involving playing cards.
Several bouquets of flowers were handed to manager Debbie Young, who in turn thanked the venue’s volunteers for continuing to “keep going in spite of the uncertain future”.
The building’s 24-year history as the Abbots Activity Centre was then officially ended by Colchester Council, which axed the service to save £74,000 a year.
