Help us save our Downside Community Centre

157 Signatures Goal: 1,300

Dunstable Town Council (DTC) wants to demolish the Downside Community Centre! DTC, together with Paradigm Housing Association carried out a so called consultation with only 45 residents out of 1,400 Downside households. The centre runs clubs for elderly and disabled residents, mothers and toddlers, lonely people and a youth club. The centre also has a person who is qualified to take young people through the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, and is also a changing area for football players. The figures from the police confirm that since the centre has had a youth club the incidents of anti-social behaviour has dropped by 41%. In the past the youngsters, now attending the centre, were hanging around the shops being a nuisance and a cause of concern to residents. If the centre is demolished where will they go as DTC has made it quite clear that the centre will not be replaced? Please sign our petition and help us save our Community Centre before it istoo late! Thank you

    Downside Community Center has been and continues to be at the heart of the local community. It helps bring people together, keep youngsters on the straight and narrow, keep local people healthy through exercise activities and allows the local community a welcoming space in which to build and maintain friendships. Dunstable does NOT need more houses at the continued expense of community and infrastructure.

    The community centre is more important to the downside residents,
    than the building of new houses.I suggest D.T.C. consults all of the Downside residents before making any decision
