Tudorville Youth Centre in Ross has now been saved from closure! The council had previously branded the building ‘unfit for purpose’ but Tudorville locals knew it was an important asset. Their campaign against closure now means that the centre will be run by the community, for the community.
Members of the Tudorville and District Community Centre association had engaged in several months of fundraising for the building and will now begin repair works to bring it back into use. The association aim to operate it as a community owned not-for-profit asset.
It just goes to show what can be achieved when a community comes together and acts together. Well done, Tudorville!
