Like many other ‘temporary’ closures, it will remain, UNLESS the council make cash from it’s use.

We are paying more council tax, but getting less and less, despite more and more homes being built and paying in, ASK yourselves why?

The ‘additional needs’ parents get Government money to pay for their welfare, yet much money is spent by the Council on providing places such as Ryde house, and Haylands farm etc. As well as all these care workers taking these ‘adds’ out for the day.

That should all be stopped.
