Save Farnborough Community Centre from closing down

Why is this important?

Rushmoor Borough Council have manoeuvred the closure of our local community centre so they can sell it off to developers.

They have offered us no replacement Community Centre. Whilst they have offered to help find alternative venues for those who use the centre, there are few facilities available for local residents in Farnborough and Rushmoor.

The borough council is keen to treat any community asset as an opportunity for profit. We have lost our live music venue, we are losing our golf course, they have their eyes on replacing the sports centre to enable them to develop half the site, and they are now planning on using the only town centre open space as a construction site.

This is OUR Community Centre, NOT theirs! It is used by countless local groups. We all need to stand up to the council and tell them to leave our community centre alone.

Reasons for signing

  • Greedy Rushmoor council need to put the needs of locals, who pay council tax, first. No police station in Farnborough , land being developed on. All sites are on public ground and yet the money doesn’t go back into the community. Rushmoor council - you should be ashamed of yourselves!!
  • It's a valuable resource & 1 of the last bits of our town's history still standing.
  • This centre has for many years been home to many small local groups that help and support people in Rushmoor and the surrounding towns. These groups would probably fold if the centre is closed, this losing vital services in the local area.
