Wivenhoe groups locked out of home
A YOUTH club, dance school and a film group have been urged not to accept defeat after the council-owned community centre where they were based was closed.
The groups are now homeless with the closure of by Essex County Council of the Phillip Road Centre, Wivenhoe.
The Hub youth club, Moving Image and the Colne Bank School of Dance moved out on Friday, with an extra setback for the youth club as organisers found locks on the equipment shed had already been changed.
Cinema group Moving Image has found a temporary home for its September season in the William Loveless Hall, in the town's High Street.
A campaign group to buy the centre once it is up for sale has been formed. To find out more visit the Phillip Road Centre website.
