I note that Walsall Council have organised a very short notice public meeting about the closure and sale of Aldridge Manor Youth Club.
The meeting is on Thursday 13th June, from 6-8pm, Aldridge Manor House, Little Aston Road, WS9 8NJ. details of who will attend have oddly not been made available.
One can only assume the unusually short notice for this is to prevent as many people from finding out about the issue as possible. I also note the local ward councillors have yet to mention this, but are still very energised by a proposed development that doesn’t even have a planning application yet. Remember, they quietly signed this and other cuts off last year, without proper consultation or a decent alternative being available.
Please attend if you can. Youth provision is very important indeed, but a very, very easy cut to make. Both The Plastic Hippo and Linda Mason have written eloquently and sensibly about this.
I wonder if the consultation meeting has anything to do with a by-election that will have to held in Aldridge quite soon?
