"We cannot afford to care"

Those words are already coming back to haunt H&F Tory leader Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh, just days after denying he used them at the annual council meeting.

News has just reached hfconwatch that H&F Carers Centre is to be closed after 12 years supporting carers and their families in the borough.

Following a lengthy review, the Tory council has decided to close the centre -without putting in place any other services for carers.

Cllr Greenhalgh has made it clear that reducing the council's debt is a priority compared to supporting carers or running summer projects for disabled children.
