Despite malicious rumours in recent Labour leaflets we can confirm that Fyndoune House Communal Hall in Witton Gilbert now has a long term future. Lib Dem controlled Durham City Council are completing work valued at approximately £20,000 which has made the building more accessible to disabled residents as well as fitting new windows. Witton Gilbert Lib Dem Councillor Rev Crooks explained to me that he was delighted to be able to bring the Hall up to standard, particularly for the elderly people who live near by. Similar work was carried out to Beurepaire Communal Hall, Bearpark last year. I’m disappointed that Labour seem to be up to their usual trick of lies and twisted facts. I’m happy to be concentrating with my fellow Lib Dems on getting the best facilities for local residents. I was recently at the site with Council leader Fraser Reynolds (photo above).
