Statement - Trevor White

SEFKA - Chairperson and Chief Instructor Grand Master Trevor White has issued the following statement following the announcement to close Sudbury Sports Centre.

I have run my association South East Freestyle Karate at Sudbury sports centre since 1984. 37 years in which we have established English international competitors and have a nationwide following, holding major competitions at the centre.

It is proven that sport is a major contributor in assisting in the wellbeing of all; especially beneficial to those with mental health issues. A fact we can fully endorse, as we at the association, have helped with referrals we have received from nhs.

This pandemic has caused a lot of pain and suffering and sport is a way to help and get people back to a normal way of life. To cite the pandemic as the reason to cause disruption and pain to many is disgusting.

The sports centre at Sudbury is a long way from what it was the days of Geoff Turner and Jean, but to close it completely is a travesty. It will be impossible to find adequate premises in 3 weeks.

If Ormiston have such disregard for local businesses clubs and people how can they possibly have any compassion or responsibility to the students in their care. I wish all those affected by this closure good luck.

Hopefully this forum can help us all find alternative venues.
