Save the Peterhead Theatre and Community Facilities

This petition had 772 supporters

The Peterhead Theatre has been a big part of my life, from using it in drama in my academy years, to local productions such as Peterhead Panto, Red Brick Theatre Group, the local Cinema..! The list goes on! The theatre is a well used place, even for the likes of Peterhead Academy's rock challenge to showcase and raise money for them to travel to Grimsby the next year. 

There isnt a lot going for Peterhead, but one of the things going for it that keeps kids off the streets, boosting their confidence and giving their parents a break is the Theatre. As you may know, the Peterhead Academy has plans to demolish the entire academy AND the community centre (that not only has the theatre that local groups have been donating to to fund for new seats, lighting and state of the art facilities, but has a BRAND NEW swimming pool changing rooms and has spent millions on updating the schools Drama department and Science Department..) the plan is to then build a new school on the same site and demolish the bowling greens at the opposite side for a new car park... or demolish the Dales Park pitches and build the new school WITH NO THEATRE.

I'm sorry, but to me this is a disgrace. Like I said earlier there is not a lot going for Peterhead so what is the council doing with our Tax Payers money, they are taking away some of the things that help money come IN to the community centre AND the town, taking away activities for the kids, and NOT replacing them like for like...! 

Please sign and share to help the kids of today and the future to have not only a Theatre, this goes for EVERYTHING that takes place in the community centre. From swimming club (as the new pool is not guaranteed to even have a diving pool OR the same length which means competitors will have to go else where) to Karate Club, to even just people going to the Gym. Please sign to hopefully show the Council that we care about the activities in our town and want to save, preserve and better them for the future.
