Scott said I have fought to have this included in Labours plans, the leader is a great supporter of our area and I am pleased he has worked with me to commit future funding to our area.

Parish Councillor & County Candidate Scott Dickinson has expressed his delight at getting the old Druridge Bay Middle school site included in Labours capital works programme. Cllr Dickinson said it was a devastating blow the day the County Council agreed to close and demolish our school taking jobs and community benefits with it.

Scott has been working hard with the Labour leadership to get the site included in their capital works programme. In agreement with the Leader the plan over the next few years would be to consult with the local people with a view of building and opening an indoor sports facility with capabilities to hold local teams & clubs providing changing rooms but also training facilities for practical learning.

Currently Hadston organisations are temporarily housed at Hadston House since the demolition of the school, this would allow them to move into purpose built premises. It's also suggested that the site can be utilised by young people's clubs from Red Row Welfare during the winter as they currently have no location. While the building would be   mainly used for sports it is planned that the building will also be able to house other groups that need larger spaces and training facilities for young and unemployed people.

Without the plans being written up as such it would be too early to consult with local people, when the time comes and plans have been firmed up locals will play a vital role in deciding what is built.
