Wrexham County Borough Council are considering closing Plas yn Rhos Day Care Centre in Rhos. Closing the Plas yn Rhos Day Care Centre and another Day Care Centre in Caia Park will save them less than £50k, but will impact on the lives of dozens of elderly people and their families and staff at the centres.
We believe that Plas yn Rhos Day Care Centre should not only be kept open, but should be better promoted and better utilised for the benefit of the immediate and wider community.
Those attending Plas Yn Rhos are amongst the most vulnerable in our society. Having contributed to society they face the prospect of being left alone, lonely, and frail.
We, the undersigned, pay our taxes in order so that it is spent on ensuring a decent quality of life for all, giving people dignity and self-respect.
"The moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy and the handicapped." Hubert H. Humphrey
"A nation's greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members." - Mahatma Ghandi
We call on WCBC not to close Plas Yn Rhos Day Centre and to instead better promote and invest in the service for the benefit of our elderly, our families and our communities.
