  1. Don’t get too excited yet. There are a lot of things and issues to sort out. Not least the Staffing Structure and the operation of the centre. We need to make sure we do all we can to satisfy everyone including current user groups.

  2. We wanted and indeed needed to take this over after the slow lingering death in Tory Lichfield District Council’s hands. Burntwood Park next but with no multi million pound grant as for Beacon Park? So Burntwood taxpayers will be paying extra to look after them?
