You may have heard via our Facebook page, that Havering Council have put the land that Stubbers Adventure Centre is on up for sale to the highest bidder!
Stubbers Adventure Centre has been operating under charitable status for over 15 years. It supplies a valuable learning resource to local schools and families who would not otherwise have the opportunity of outdoor education in the area.
Stubbers has asked on numerous occasions to be given the opportunity of purchasing the freehold from Havering Council, to ensure the on-going availability of a proven and much loved resource.
We are therefore asking you to sign the petition to demonstrate the high regard in which Stubbers is held by the local community and to stress that to sell to the highest bidder regardless of their intentions, threatens the future of Stubbers as an outdoor centre in a world where so many irreplaceable assets have already been irrevocably disposed of.
It is our intention to ensure that Stubbers remains in the hands of Essex Boys and Girls Clubs, run as a not-for-profit outdoor centre and that securing its long term future will lead to long term investment to the benefit of the entire local community.
