Social Decay

The building above used to be a large and vibrant Community Centre that not only offered a Youth Club and Parent and Baby group but pottery and art clubs for adults. It has now been closed, boarded up and left to decay. There are rumours that the building itself will be converted into flats. So more community without a centre to provide for them.

Sadly I believe that this sight will become all the more common with the recent cuts and proposals. We will all witness the social decay of our community

    What a shame, it looks like a lovely building too.

    I hope it gets saved, and that your community do get provided for x

    sorry to know about it

  3. A really good point, Nic. I hate the demise of the local communities and everything that supports them. It's one of the reasons that social relations are breaking down.

  4. I see the same thing in my town to.

    Very sad.
