Evening Times 15th April 2009:
Of the decision to close Wyndford and St Gregory’s primaries, Mr Purcell said: “In Wyndford, community education will be coming forward with a proposal to turn the existing nursery school into an extensive children and family centre. This will provide first class nursery education and also improve access to childcare facilities and after school activities for older children.
“It has become clear during the consultation that there are a whole number of reasons why people in Wyndford feel their community is being let down.
“I have asked deputy council leader Jim Coleman to lead a special team of council officials who will work with parents and other community activists to improve the whole Wyndford estate.
“The schools will close, but I would invite parents to work with us in the development of the new children and family centre to make sure what we plan for the area is something driven by their needs.
Was that statement made in good faith?
The nursery is a very small one storey building surrounded by Cube Housing Association land.
