Concerns raised for Trowbridge centre as team removed
7:00pm Friday 22nd March 2013 in News
Selwood Housing has stressed it will not change the services provided at a community centre after removing the volunteer team that has run it for 13 years.
As part of a tenancy review, which saw volunteer group Selwood Tenants’ Voice come to an end, the organisation took control of the Manor Road Resource Centre that was overseen by Studley Green Tenants’ and Residents’ Association.
A Selwood spokesman said it was not stopping activities and none of the equipment was being taken away.
It provides a computer club, a credit union workshop, coffee mornings and a Friday TARA drop-in session.
TARA chairman John Alford has complained to Selwood. He said: “We have spent thousands and thousands of pounds and everything we have got there is through our hard work.”
