A campaign has been launched to save the only community centre in Annan.
Dumfries and Galloway Council is planning to close it because of budget cuts, and move the groups that use it elsewhere.
Parents, staff and volunteers say they will fight to keep the facility that has been serving the town for nearly 30 years.
Kathryn Samson reports:
Babs Burton is the Chair for Annan Community Education (ACE), and she is concerned for the future of children's groups in the town:
People in Annan are determined to save their community centre after plans were announced by the council to shut it down.
Youth clubs, pre-school groups and other leisure groups have used the centre for the past 28 years.
Protesters have now launched a petition to save the centre and are holding a public meeting on Tuesday (16th July) to highlight opposition against the move.
Dumfries and Galloway Council plan on closing the the centre in order to save £16,000 a year.
