I'm back!

Sorry for the lack of posts recently! However I am now back and ready for action. We had a really good committee meeting tonight which has re invigorated the campaign.

We kicked off with a discussion about the news of Goals financial position. Falling profits have led to an announcement from Goals that they will reduce the number of new centres they plan to open in 2009 from 6 to 4. Click here for further details. Let's hope Morden Park is one they plan to abandon!

Over the holidays we recieved the testimonies of a number of residents who back on to Goals site in other parts of the UK. They make for grim reading - complaints about the noise, anti social behaviour and flood lighting are central. There are also lots of comments about matches and socialising often going on long after 11.00pm. We are planning to put them on the website soon and will send them around our email group as soon as possible.
