THE future of the Sub Rooms is uncertain and allegations continue to swirl of councillors being pressured into making a hasty decision regarding their future.

Amidst all this uncertainty I want to set on the record the position of Stroud Liberal Democrats.

We want the Sub Rooms to remain open to the public.

Stroud Liberal Democrats continue to believe that the best option would be a trust or community-led ownership model.

Lib Dem members are actively working with others to see if this idea can become a reality.

All proposals to run the Sub Rooms need to be assessed fairly and on their own merits.

I would welcome a clear statement of the positions of other parties on this issue.
