Save Charteris Sports Centre

A community resource.

 

Background:

 

As a sports centre it provides great value gym membership*.  It is the only local sports centre, which allows members to  "pay as your go". Apart form “gym” activities, It hosts team sports (e.g. football, badminton) fitness classes, martial arts and yoga.

 

Charteris is also a valuable community resource, far more than just a gym, offering, children's parties, holiday activities for children and hosts our local cycling project.  It's our "community centre" and now it's set for closure!

 

Our aim is to keep Charteris SERVICE run by Brent. Unfortunately Charteris Sports Centre sits on land, which can be sold to a private housing developer; Public asset stripping- Private profit!  

 

We ask Brent to agree to:

 

1) STOP the threatened closure on the 1st April 2011.

 

2) Agree to meet with local residents and centre users to discuss the alternatives to the "destruction" of this irreplaceable public resource.
