Campaigners meet to discuss Oldfield Primary School plans

Frustrated campaigners packed into Bray Village Hall on Sunday to voice their disapproval over plans to relocate Oldfield Primary School.

The Royal Borough decided in May to move the popular school from its current location in Chiltern Road to greenbelt land in Bray Road.

More than 100 people attended the public meeting in the High Street which highlighted concerns about the Royal Borough's decision and was organised by the Fisheries Residents' Association in Oldfield.

Chairman Doctor Barrie Mair told listeners how he believed the council had failed to consult certain groups of residents about the plans.

He also said they had misled people by only providing selected background information that supported their case.

The other purpose of the meeting was to create an action group to continue to fight the plans.

Mr Mair said they had now attracted over 200 signatures of people who back their stand and was happy with how the gathering had turned out.

"There were lots of new faces which is what we were aiming for, we hit our target audience," he added.
