Hundreds sign web petition in bid to save World War Two buildings at The Lincolnsfields Children's Centre
Worried parents and teachers are urging people to save the World War Two buildings at The Lincolnsfields Children's Centre in Bushey.
An online petition has received more than three hundred signatures requesting that the possible demolition of these historic buildings be prevented.
There are also calls for the buildings to be retained for further educational use.
Claire Musk’s daughter went to the centre a few weeks ago with Abbots Langley School for their Year 6 trip.
Claire said: "There is not long before every person from World War Two is going to be dead, it is inevitable, and so this history will be completely destroyed."
She said if the centre closes there will be nowhere locally where children can experience that kind of history, as the interactive experience Lincolnsfields offers is a real eye opener.
Claire added: "We have got generations and generations to come and it would be good for them to see it."
The centre is based on the original World War Two site of Bushey Hall Headquarters of the 8th U.S.A.A.F. Fighter Command from 1942 to 1946, and an educational programme has been running since 2007.
The buildings are not safeguarded or protected and the centre is a charity.
Lincolnsfields Children Centre's spokesman, Phil Knight, said: "When we know it is not going to be demolished then we can go forward and apply for a lottery grant, until that happens we are stuck in limbo."
