Mossend Senior Citizens Centre Closure

29th August 2016

Recently I shared my disappointment that CultureNL were pressing ahead with their closure of the Mossend Senior Citizens Centre as part of their wider closures plan.

Therefore last week, I met with Mossend SNP – who ran a campaign to save the Senior Citizens’ Centre – to see what help I can provide.

I heard first hand from them their disappointment that the Senior Citizens Centre had been left by the wayside, whilst other community facilities received the rebranding they needed to showcase their facilities.

The name above the door may have been changed to reflect the ability of the community to use the Centre but CultureNL have made no attempt to showcase what the facility has to offer.

CultureNL have completely abdicated their responsibility to look at other options for facilities like the Mossend Senior Citizens Centre.

Members of the Mossend SNP said they wanted to see what they called a “Community Hall For All” and I want to support them in that ambition.

The fact that local peoples voices are being ignored whilst CultureNL steamroll ahead with these proposals – is outrageous.

I will continue to support those in our community who champion local services and local facilities that make our communities what they are.
