What is hap­pen­ing with our cen­tre?

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

SOME months ago I at­tended an en­thu­si­as­tic meet­ing at Charville Com­mu­nity Cen­tre to stop the sale and build­ing on of un­wanted, to the lo­cal com­mu­nity, build­ings.

The in­fra­struc­ture of the lo­cal area would have difficulty ab­sorb­ing the large amount of new peo­ple, traf­fic etc. Schools al­though nu­mer­ous in the area are full and all sorts of good and jus­ti­fi­able rea­sons were put for­ward as to how we, the lo­cals, could and would show our ob­jec­tion to this plan.

In this meet­ing it was sug­gested that ban­ners be fas­tened to fences, along with posters for house and shop win­dows, fundrais­ing events and many more ideas were floated.

We even got to hear and ask ques­tions of our lo­cal MP. But since the eu­pho­ria of the meet­ing..... noth­ing.

Has this died a death? Or has the land been se­cretly sold, with­drawn from sale or it it still just ‘hang­ing’ there hop­ing that the lo­cals will just for­get. Has mega ap­a­thy struck these peo­ple? Or are we wait­ing for un­seen wheels to turn? It would be in­ter­est­ing if some­thing came of the lo­cal con­cern for our area, fields and com­mu­nity.
