Admittedly, Ayers took over a university already in disarray. Throughout the 1890s, UC had no chief executive. The faculty took turns serving as dean, so anytime a dean made an unpopular decision, the faculty would ignore it until next year, when the new dean would repeal it.

Parents angry over day centre closure plansCampaign to save The Mulberry Centre in Sealand Road09:30, 10 JUL 2014Updated11:23, 10 JUL 2014Parents of services users at the Mulberry Centre off Sealand Road, Chester are dismayed after a meeting with CWAC officials in which they told them that the centre is due to close (Image: Ian Cooper) Get daily updates directly to your inbox+ SubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribing!Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailA campaign has been launched to save a day centre that supports adults with complex special needs.Cheshire West and Chester Council proposes closing The Mulberry Centre in Sealand Road where staff from its care provider Vivo Care Choices look after people with a high level of dependency because of their physical and mental disabilities.The purpose built centre, with plentiful parking, features secure key pad access with large rooms, wide corridors and doors suitable for wheelchairs, a multi sensory room, theatre, laundry and a large outdoor area with gardens.It has been supported through the fundraising efforts of the Friends of Mulberry charity over many years.But now the council is consulting on its closure saying the number of users has dwindled from around 100 a few years ago to just 11 now with the potential for services to be provided at other local day centres or for customers to receive direct payments to access other day opportunities ‘built around their individual needs’.At a stormy meeting at The Mulberry, parents claimed the centre had been deliberately run down a view shared by staff who have contacted The Chronicle which makes Blacon ward councillor Reggie Jones (Lab) suspect the council has a secret plan to cash in by selling the site.Cllr Jones, who has started a campaign to save The Mulberry, asked council managers: “I want confirmation that if the majority of users and their carers say they want to remain here that they will be allowed to remain here and the Mulberry will not be sold off.”Because that is the real fear of people, that ultimately the consultation is an exercise about selling the land off and those with high dependency, those users with high dependency, will actually be farmed out to various locations in Canal Street or wherever when really they are quite happy with the service and the location.”He said if usage had reduced then the council should be working with Vivo to “do more things from the centre”.Furious Karen Shannon, whose 22 year old daughter Tyler attends the centre because she has cerebral palsy, epilepsy and is partially sighted, said: “My daughter is happy here.”She comes here every day and she’s really really happy here and I’m happy for her to come here. I know she’s safe and I know they look after her well.”Ms Shannon, from Blacon, was upset the public consultation over closure encompassed many more people than just those directly affected.”Our views don’t count. As a parent, we work hard to bring up a disabled child, which is hard work, night and day, 24 hours a day.”Elaine Richardson, from Christleton, whose 28 year old daughter Nicola has severe learning difficulties and is registered blind, believes the centre has been closed by stealth.”Our hands are being forced a little bit.
