I’ve just read in today’s Spalding Guardian (April 11) that £80,000 “tin hut” work is starting in Whaplode.
Also it says there is a further investment of a new portable cabin with a kitchen.
I’m referring to the church-room at Whaplode Drove.
As I understand, the local church will have donated to the renovation?
My thoughts? 100 yards down the road is The Elizabethan Centre, which is a fairly modern community place compared with the tin hut.
Instead of putting the £80,000 towards the renovation of a tin hut why couldn’t the two committees have joined together and shared the same facilities and invested in a long term project.
The work which is being carried out will still only make it an upgraded tin hut, with a short term life.
Can someone please answer my concerns. Is this an investment or a waste of the public’s money?
