The county council had decided to close the award-winning training project on the grounds that it was too expensive. Up to 20 trainees occupied the building from December 2 but gave up on January 4 after the council obtained an eviction order. Jackie spent Christmas Day in the centre where supporters brought her seasons greetings and dinner. Photograph by Jamie Jones
