Crawley Live Column, Winter 2018

Christmas is almost here and the council has been working hard for months to deliver a programme of events fit for the season. Including, following years of residents’ requests, securing another Christmas ice rink for Crawley, this year even bigger and better than last.

As the cold sets in, I’m reminded that much of my focus over recent weeks has been taken up with the fight to save Crawley Open House from closure, following West Sussex County Council’s plan to cut their grant to zero.

Every council is facing tough financial choices following years of austerity, but making up budget gaps by taking money from the homeless cannot be the right thing to do and the way the local community has rallied round to support our campaign demanding West Sussex County Council reverse their proposals has really shown the difference in how people look out for each other in Crawley.
