Four parents have been banned from a community centre for a month over comments left on a Facebook page.So they run bleating to the local newspaper, which accords them a voice. Also, the other party:
Crystal Roberts, Sarah Gregory, Donna Moore and another friend have been told to stay away from Greenstead Community Centre after they protested at the way it was being run.
The centre claims messages which intimidated staff were posted on Facebook page, Bring back the old Greenstead Community Centre.Hmmmm, now, be honest. Do the two young females pictured in that story look like the sort to do that? Or not..?
Mother-of-two Crystal said: “I didn’t write anything like that.Actions have consequences, love. But then, it seems two pregnancies didn't teach you that...
“I think we should sit down and discuss it, but before we have had the chance to do that the centre has banned us.
“It makes things very awkward for me as I use Surestart which is upstairs and I have to get a member of Surestart staff to come downstairs and collect my baby and buggy outside so I don’t set foot in the centre.”
Trustee Julie Young said: “Some of the correspondence that has been going on has certainly included abusive and threatening material.I await the police getting involved as accusation and counter-accusation fly...
“I posted a statement on the page on behalf of the centre’s trustees saying we would not tolerate any abuse of centre staff and I was deleted as a member of the group.
“One of the members of the churches tried to facilitate a meeting and the action of the group was to remove that individual as a member.”
