Basketball case resolved

8th October 2004 at 01:00
Sense seems to have prevailed over the use of sports facilities at the Highfields youth and community centre after the Leicester Riders basketball team was kept out by angry residents, as reported here last week.

The team was caught in a row between locals and the city council over control of the centre. Now the Riders have been allowed back in.

Pity relations with the city council aren't so cordial. The re-naming of facilities has been postponed by a bureaucratic wrangle which has prevented new signs going up.

The council's treatment of redundancies at Highfields and other centres could result in it hearing from their Lordships, hard on the heels of a judicial review which condemned the council's handling of voluntary service cuts.
