Jubilee Centre gets full grant for 2019/2020
Marlborough's Jubilee Centre will - after all - get its full grant for the coming financial year.
As part of the cost saving plans for Wiltshire Council's new budget, the Jubilee centre had been told, with less than a month's notice, that its grant was to be cut by 30 per cent. This could have meant
losing staff, raising prices for its lunches - or even closing altogether.
Yesterday - Wednesday, March 13 - the Chair of the centre was told that they would be getting their full grant for 2019-2020. So their emergency plans for fund raising will be put on hold.
Now they wait to see what Wiltshire Council's future policy toward such centres for vulnerable older people will be.
