Closure of the Wilderness Centre

As you may have read in the local press the County Council has closed the Wilderness Centre and other environmental education centres in the county and plans to sell them to raise money.

A campaign group “Friends of the Wilderness Centre” was set up to fight the closure and come up with an alternative solution.

The group attempted to block the sale by legal means but the High Court has rules that they do not have a legal argument to stop the closure. See this report from the BBC.

The executive committee have contacted the Friends of the Wilderness Centre to offer our support in principle and discuss possible ways of supporting the campaign.
