The Save Wornington College campaign has collected over 1600 signatures for the petition.
They will now be addressing the RBKC Full Council Meeting on Wednesday 26th April at the Town Hall, on Hornton Street and we will take this opportunity to explain to the Councillors why the much loved adult education establishment is far too important an institution to be turned into more unaffordable housing with an unseen commitment to re-provide a smaller educational space.
The Save Wornington College campaign will highlight to the Council how the College has brought many positive, life changing opportunities to the North Kensington community and how this important resource needs to be protected for the future.
They will asking RBKC to support their demands that the entire building remains in educational use, that there is no reduction in the provision and diversity of courses offered, that there are no staff cuts and that the creche and other facilities on the Wornington site are protected.
