The plan was to use the space to put on community meals, classes, art projects and other events. People visited the locals to discuss this, and called a public meeting for Monday 6th so everyone could decide priorities together. One local was unconvinced but the one thing she did want was a Pilates class - so this was going to be one of the first things organized!
This was such a strong example of direct action that the people involved are determined to keep working to make their social centre a reality.
