Phoenix Centre - council working for best outcome

I am writing following the article in last week’s Express about the future of the Phoenix Centre in Lewes.

Reading the article, people may have formed the impression that only Lewes Town Councillors were present at the stakeholder meeting and I would like to reassure readers that, as someone who was present myself, there were also councillors local to Lewes there from both the county council and the district council, who have the future of the centre just as much in mind.

Personally, I am working with a number of others to try and ensure not only that the centre stays open but that the range of services is widened and the availability of services increased.
