Threat of Closure

When the Woodland Centre came under threat of closure in 2010, due to the financial crisis, the local community rallied to its defence. A petition was circulated around the town, garnering over 1,500 signatures, a Facebook Page was established gaining 199 “fans” and in late March the campaign was a success with the council withdrawing plans to close the centre within the last few weeks.
