Spartacus, You have a sound head and speak much sense, you are well versed in several local Government areas. I agree that Beau Sejour is under used in the day time and should be made more available to the needy. I also believe that whilst in runs at a financial loss that certain areas the value to the Island as a whole can not be viewed at the bottom of a balance sheet. To out source it to a private company would cost the Island very dearly in more than one area, in the long term. We pay our tax and should get some small benefit from it, and this is one that could be made available to the whole Island in different ways, long may it remain under States ownership costing very Islander just over £1 per a month ( on the basis of £800,000 and 60,000 people). If you were to put a value on what youngsters get from the social side of the centre, ie mixing with different groups, being able to express themselves, personal confidence, various other none monetary values, it probably breaks even.
