I am very concerned that Surrey County Council has refused to guarantee that Lakers Youth Centre in Goldsworth Park will be rebuilt, after it was damaged by a fire last month.
During yesterday’s Full Surrey County Council meeting, I asked a formal question of the Council’s Cabinet Member in charge of the Council’s property – and the answer left me really concerned about the future of Lakers Youth Centre.
Local residents want to know that we are not losing a valuable community resource here in Goldsworth Park, having a physical building to provide youth services in is incredibly important as not everything can be replicated by detached youth work.
I challenged the Conservative Cabinet Member to confirm that Lakers will reopen, but he refused to give that assurance. Residents will be really concerned that they are about to lose a valuable community asset, but the local Lib Dem team and I are committed to campaigning for it to reopen.Leave a comment
