Douglas Tilbe House, the Ludwick Family Centre and now Panshanger Community Centre.
Welwyn Hatfield Council has again demanded massive rent increases from a community facility serving the young and old alike in Panshanger. Facing financial oblivion, the centre has closed.
It’s clear that this Conservative Council is anti-community. It ignores the views of residents and works against facilities that our communities depend on.
They see the cost of everything but the value of nothing. What will the real price be when Welwyn Garden City has no community facilities left?
Whenever the Conservatives have attacked our community facilities in this way, Labour Councillors have stood up and voted against it.
Massive rent hikes for the services you pay for, Tax rises for residents, Pay rises for Conservative Councillors. It’s time to put an end to this reckless, short-sighted Conservative Council.
Vote Labour on 3rd May, for a Council that values our communities, and stops working against the things that they need.

With the by-election imminent in Handside, residents have the choice on Thursday 14th December on who to chose to represent them.
Why are we having an election so close to Christmas?
Good question. It's because the current Liberal Democrat candidate is standing down.
But wait, isn't there an election in May?
Yup. There is, and whoever you elect on Thursday 14th December will have to stand for re-election. It's a wasteful election that's costing us all money.
I currently work in mental health nationally and have previously worked for the County Council and Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust. I’m active in our community and gearing up to run the London Marathon for Mind. I live here in Handside and, like you, I am proud to call it my home. However, I’m tired of watching the Lib Dems sit idly whilst the Tory council enact policies that cause harm to our community.
It’s outrageous that the Cabinet thinks they can cut our services while increasing their own pay. They ignore our concerns, taking your support for granted and it cannot continue. I promise to be the voice that Handside needs, holding the Conservatives to account, and to challenge them every step of the way.
I will listen to you
On day one I will return the cancelled surgeries to Handside and make sure these work for you
I will fight for better services
And resist the unfair and damaging cuts to our public services
I will stand up for safer communities
By working with local services and PCSO’s to raise your issues and make our streets safe
I will be an independent voice
Unlike the Tories you can trust me to always vote in the interest of Handside not simply with the party line
