Motion to Close Aurora
A motion to close Aurora was debated at the meeting on 9th September 2008. It said:
"This meeting approves the dissolution of Aurora
due to insufficient active membership."
Press Release 10th September 2008:
Surprise vote saves Aurora
Aurora, Croydon police’s lesbian, gay, bi and transgender (LGBT) consultation group met to debate a motion for closure on Tuesday 9th September. Only half a dozen LGBT people regularly attended meetings so it was felt that Aurora was not representative enough.
The motion was to have been passed with a two thirds majority at two consecutive meetings. But on Tuesday there was an increased attendance, and a clear vote against closure.
As a result there will be changes to attract and involve more LGBT
people. So if you’re a Croydon person see
and think about joining in.
