Video. The elderly residents of a care home - and day care centre - said an emotional goodbye, today, to the places they had called home. Despite a long campaign and a 3,500 signature petition the doors were closed for good.
The council said it would cost £1.5m to modernise the buildings - money they couldn't afford. Mel Bloor talked to Alwyne Jeffries, centre user; Councillor Rachel Eden, Reading Borough Council; and Lu Cozma, campaigner.
