Do Not Sell The Central Club (A Community Asset) To Commercial Developers

This petition had 4,105 supporters

We the undersigned, petition Reading Borough Council (RBC) to think again and give proper consideration to the Aspire (Reading) CIC compelling, compliant, fully funded £10 Million Bid to acquire the spiritual home of the Black diaspora of Reading, the Central Club site and buildings.  

We feel the black community of Reading should not be scapegoated and made to suffer disproportionately for RBC's financial budgeting failure. We believe Aspire's bid provides strategic services to the diaspora that RBC are retreating from which makes Aspire a long term partner to the solution as their bid is 100% consistent with RBC's strategic priorities.

Aspire's fully funded Bid does not require a penny piece from RBC, EVER!
