Why is Warwickshire College evicting Bath Place Community Venture from the Old Library?

Bath Place is a charity that has served the community of Leamington Spa for over 35 years and has made the Old Library their home since 2009. Warwickshire College paid the County Council £97100 for the building and are trying to sell it to developers for over £1.5 million.

Bath Place has spent almost £150,000 and countless hours of voluntary work  in trying to preserve and maintain this Community asset and is home to countless community and art groups, social enterprises and serves some of the most vulnerable people in Leamington Spa. Why should Warwickshire College have the right to sell such a precious piece of Leamington’s heritage for 15 times what they paid for it and remove it from community use forever?

Whilst Networking Mummies were visiting Bath Place community venture this week we found this sad news out. More details will follow but it's looking like developers want to use the site for a non community project and build flats. We at Networking Mummies HQ have offered to support the community venture anyway we can in their fight to allow it to remain a community building as it states in the deeds it must. They do so much there from helping vulnerable people to children's groups and more, it would be such a shame for this to go ahead. We've put together a petition which is here and will be available online on our website soon. As Networking Mummies is a close knit community itself we will be working closely with Bath Place to raise the profile of this issue.

PLEASE TAKE TWO MINUTES OF YOUR TIME TO FILL OUT THIS PETITION BELOW AND SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY.
