Sad plans to close Hillcote
3:00pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in Letters
AS a parent of a severely handicapped adult who spent a number of years under the care of the wonderful and loving staff at Hillcote, may I say how sad and disgusted I am at talk of its closure.
The authorities involved here obviously have no idea of the stress involved in a situation like this.
Hillcote at that time had a group of parents, friends and staff who, under the title Friends of Hillcote, after years of hard fundraising and the generosity of the residents of Salisbury and surrounding district, were able to finance the conversion of the building known as The Stable Block at Hillcote into a useful activity centre.
We also provided lots of playground equipment. These items together cost many, many thousands of pounds, so if these soulless authorities are thinking of selling they would be robbing these kind donors of their generous donations.
