My Watford News Article July 2012

Hi All,

Another article featuring a service member interviewed about the Crescent and what they think of the withdrawal of funding on page 48 of My Watford News July 2012. You can read the article here http://tinyurl.com/d5u8v64 

Hertfordshire County Council maintain they cannot afford to fund two services, yet they are spending almost as much as they did before they went to one service, so this makes no sense. They are probably only saving 30k a year, to say they cannot afford to fund the Crescent is nonsense. All that needs to happen is for funding to be split as before, we can make savings, and if the other agency can’t, or won’t, then who is wasting money for the tax payer?
