Right Access to our Charity Base at Accrington Road Community Centre

Due to circumstance beyond our control, we not been able use our charity base at Accrington Road Community Centre since the began March 2019.

We have right of access as we Charity Business, by paying our payments under our contact. The centre volunteers change font door key with little notices.

The volunteers stated it would closed for 2 week only, now it over a months. Our charity base is locked off to protect the charity equipement, to stop anybody else entering of our business.

We accept the fact the centre is being done up, but does stop our right of access as business. The Charity can not fully operate, due we cannot our different pieces equipments for differents events.

There has been events have been cancelled, and lot of money for the charity, each weekend. The full details of the reason why has been pass to the different events organisers which we had to cancelled to this access problems for over a month.

We are awaiting of Blackburn with Darwen for a new key for the community centre, as soon as possible, so that charity get back working a full capacity.

It not Blackburn with Darwen Council fault, it all this incorrect information from these volunteers in the first place.

We now awaiting of Blackburn with Darwen Council for Accrington Road Community Centre front door keys so that the charity to move forward again !!!!!
