I am sad to hear that the Arts Depot have asked the excellent Community Focus to leave thier premises so they can have more space for other ventures. I understand this request comes from a cut in the Council grant, and the need to balance the books. Community Focus do a lot of excellent work, and I know my colleague Cllr Anne Hutton is working with Community Focus to find a resolution. If there isn't the possibility of accommodating them in the Arts Depot, I hope the service will not be lost, and perhaps can be reconstituted at another location. Will let you know more.
