Off to meet parents and children at Red Gables – a special facility in Crouch End for children with particular needs.
Red Gables is a local success story helping children and parents and doing a great job. So of course, Labour want to close it. Lib Dem colleague Cllr Ron Aitken spotted this in the mountain of papers we get (for meetings we are not allowed to speak at). He contacted the parents and with local resident Sue Hessel brought it into the public forum. At council we have a deputation led by Sue and a motion moved by Ron.
It’s becoming quite a hot issue, with Labour not playing straight with residents about what their plans really are for Red Gables.
