Letter: Closure of the training centre was a sad loss

The cruellest thing ever was to close the training centre at Eastfield.

Just to air my views. The cruellest thing ever was to close the training centre at Eastfield.

A wonderful building where the less fortunate people with learning disabilities attended in safety and shelter, where they could meet up with their friends and were trained to do many things they were able to do. It gave them a goal in life and brought out their abilities.

Now there is no meeting place for those with learning difficulties and that is a huge shame. The carers are wonderful but I feel the social aspect has been lost following the closure of the training centre - which was a sad day indeed.
