Following Bradford Council’s decision on Thursday 23 February to go ahead with the budget plans the Mechanics Action Group are meeting on Monday 27 February and will inform people of any plans to take the matter forward.
Thank you to everyone who signed the petition of 950 signatures and to everyone who sent in or filled a Comments form online.
Denholme Town Councillor Jacqui MacFarlane, who was at the meeting on Tuesday 21 February said: “It is a sorry state of affairs that in the 21st century, we are saying we cannot afford to keep this invaluable resource open for the people of Denholme, particularly the elderly residents. They deserve better than this.”
