Stoke-on-Trent Willfield community centre faces closure

The Willfield Centre in Stoke-on-Trent will close despite a campaign to keep it open.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council decided on Thursday evening to approve the closure of the community and fitness centre, which will make way for a new academy.

Users of the building, in Bentilee, can transfer to nearby facilities, the council said.

Objectors have two weeks to call in the decision for a review, and the council said it expects that to happen.
