Save Farnborough Community Centre
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.
