'THE list is ‘endless’ for the number of activities and events that will no longer be held at Padgate Youth and Community Centre.

After the news that the council will be taking over, the team at the centre have displayed a banner outside of the Padgate Lane venue highlighting what kind of things will no longer take place there.

This includes parties, live music, children's craft sessions, bingo, afterschool clubs and many more.

The team said the list of what will be ‘no more’ is ‘endless’.

Warrington Guardian:

From August 31, the charity will have to ‘quit’ the centre after nearly 50 years.

This comes after the team at Padgate Youth and Community Centre have been unable to agree on financial terms with Warrington Borough Council to enable a lease to be signed.

WBC required costs for the building are in excess of £50,000, but as the charity’s income last year was £25,000, they could not take on this liability.

Jane Henshaw, the centre manager of seven years, told the Warrington Guardian how she is ‘absolutely gutted’ at the decision.

“It is there for everybody and the biggest sadness of it is that we can’t carry it on,” Jane said.

“It’s hard and it’s really sad.”

As a way of celebrating the last 48 years and thanking the community for their support, the centre will be holding a festival at the end of the month.

It is taking place on Saturday, August 27, from 12pm-5pm.
