Letter from PCC Ltd

Hi Folks,
I writing to you on behalf of Portaferry Community Collective Ltd and Friends of Exploris Trust.  As you may be aware, at the Dept of Enterprise Trade and Investment meeting in Exploris a few weeks back, Ashley Boreland, Chief Executive of Ards Borough Council advised the Dept Committee that they had received very few letters from the community objecting to the closure of Exploris, the petitions only count of one piece of correspondence.
Therefore PCC and FoET would like to ask all groups, traders and residents within Portaferry to write a letter to Ards Borough Council stating that they object to the closure of Exploris and also ask them to reconsider their decision.
In order to make it as easy as possible on people, we are arranging for boxes to be placed in Portaferry Credit Union, Post Office, Library and Marine Biology Station for people to drop their letters into and we’ll arrange for them to be taken to the Council, ideally we would like the letters by Saturday 16th November in order for them to be passed to the Council well before the Exploris deadline expires on 27th November.

 Thank you all for your support in this matter.
