Aylesbury "safehaven" sports facility to close despite protests

Buckinghamshire County Council have confirmed the closure of the Sport and Social club in Aylesbury, despite protests from local residents and a petition containing hundreds of signatures.

Locals say the "safehaven" recreational space is the only green space in the community where families, friends and residents can spend time socialising and some have gone as far to say closing the space is a "travesty".

Buckinghamshire County Council said based on the documents submitted, both bids appear to present an ineffectively high risk to the County Council of the club failing to be viable under new management and it was therefore recommended the club was closed.
