Friends of Brookdale: more meetings and the fight continues!
February 2015 update
Our Friends of Brookdale (FOB) campaign group has recently met with various councillors regarding the disgraceful and unacceptable threat of Sefton Council to close Ainsdale’s Brookdale Resource Centre.
FOB met Labour Cllrs Paul Cummins and Liz Savage on Tuesday 10 February 2014.
Paul Cummins is the Cabinet Member responsible for the current consultation on Brookdale. Liz Savage expressed additional views on Brookdale on this following link:
The argument in favour of retaining the Brookdale is overwhelming and very compelling. Support for our campaign has astonished everyone in its magnitude and exhibited the great public feeling against any ridiculous and ill-considered council plans to close the facility. We presented these sincere views passionately yet logically to councillors. Our opinions are based on Brookdale being much needed, highly respected and the ‘only’ specialist dementia/Alzheimer’s centre in the region.
Friends of Brookdale had also met with Ainsdale’s Libdem Cllr Haydn Preece on 6 February 2014. Cllr Preece is supportive and wholly opposed to closure!
Why is Ainsdale’s Brookdale Centre so important?
