Groups invited to have their say on school site future

Sports clubs and other user groups are being invited to come and hear more about future options for the former Lindisfarne Middle School sports hall and the wider school site.

The meeting is being organised by the Alnwick Forum, a partnership between Northumberland County Council and Alnwick Town Council.

It will be held at the main hall at Lindisfarne Adult Learning Centre, on Lindisfarne Road NE66 1AX, on Wednesday, January 23 at 6pm.

It follows the first engagement event on future plans for Alnwick and its key buildings held late last year which attracted hundreds of visitors. The Forum is committed to ensuring the future use of all council buildings is fully considered and discussed.

Forum members and Alnwick County Councillors Gordon Castle and Robbie Moore said: “We know the sports centre and playing fields are widely used by a large number of groups and The Forum is keen to find the best way forward for the site.

“This event is a good opportunity to discuss these facilities and the future of the wider site.”

Alan Symmonds, Mayor of Alnwick added: “The Alnwick & Denwick Neighbourhood Plan considers the Adult Education Centre and Sports Centre as key community facilities.

“We are keen to look at all the options available and in doing this, it is important that we hear from users.”

Sports clubs, user groups and anyone else interested in the future of the site are welcome to come along for 6pm.
