News from the Hackney Fightback campaign –
3 Hackney Council nurseries (Fernbank, St. Johns & Wetherall) have been recommended for closure and/or privatisation in a recent Best Value draft proposal. Two community nurseries are also to lose their council funding and thus face closure.
As predicted in the last Hackney Independent and backed up this week in the Hackney Gazette, the council are planning a massive round of sell-offs of council property. Part of this plan is to get rid of Atherdon Nursery in Laura Place , which has been occupied by protesters since its closure, but other nurseries and day centres are all under threat too
