Wargrave Big Local members on Radio Merseyside
As reported by Wargrave Big Local member Louise Forshaw, Louise and Damien O’Connor were on Radio Merseyside this morning (010317) at half past seven talking about the proposed closure of the Job Centre in Earlestown. If you missed it you can listen on the iplayer later today.
Damien added that they managed to cover most points in the broadcast piece that they wanted to. After the interview, Damien and Louise went on to a meeting with the Job Centre management and had a ‘good and frank discussion’ with them. What became clear is that the Job Centre management and staff are “every bit as passionate about getting people employment in our area as we are” he says. We made it clear that we wanted our Job Centre kept open. However should it close they take our point that we still need a facility here in the Wargrave/Newton area and that we don’t want to break the links that we have built up between the Job Centre and our Job Club, held each week at the Newton Community Centre. “Lets hope something positive will come from the process”.
