As you may have been aware from a previous article, the previous committee of the Butt Lane Community Centre all resigned leaving this centre in Butt Lane to close. It was reported at the time that the previous committed which was mainly made up of local Labour Councillors had decided to resign when Newcastle Borough Council decided to impose the right to have an elected member of their choice on the committee.
The Butt Lane Community Centre has since closed and is in need of a new committee, something that Lib Dem councillor Dennis Richards is keen to setup. The committee ideally should be non-political and consist of people who have an interest in running a local venue. The group would have responsibility for the day to day running and financial accounts of the venue.
