Fight to Save Melvin Hall Elderly Care

At yesterday’s Penge Forum meeting which was very well attended, standing room only, residents, trustees and councillor’s agreed to set up an action group led by Cllr Kevin Brooks, to work with and support the Trustees to devise a plan to make the services provided at Melvin Hall financially sustainable. 

Trustees had given notice of closure to LBB but the portfolio holder for care  appeared to have listened to the residents demand to save this vital service in Penge, and he suggested there was a possibility of further rent relief payments and an opportunity of hiring out the halls when not required by Age Concern. 

This is just a very brief update on our last blog on the possible closure of Melvin Hall.  This facility has not yet been saved, there is still a long way to go so work needs to start now to engage with the Trustees and LBB and take this fight forward.
