Arthur Clark home loses fight
Written by: drobs
Campaigners lost their battle to save The Arthur Clark Home and Albert Road Day Centre last night.
Despite protests from residents, their families and opposition parties Reading Borough Council’s ruling Labour group voted to close the neighbouring Caversham services.
The council admitted it would take £1.1 million to bring The Arthur Clark Home up to modern standards and £400,000 of investment would be needed at Albert Road Day Centre.
Protestors earlier waved placards outside the Civic Offices having officially handed over a petition signed by more than 3,500 people at a full council meeting last week.
