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.
"Twenty eight years ago people fought hard to get a community centre.
"We don't understand what gives the council the right to come in and say that's it."
