FEARS have been raised that the Territorial Army (TA) Centre in Alnwick, could be earmarked for closure.

It comes after the Prime Minister last year commissioned the six-month review of the Reserve Forces, to be known as Future Reserves 2020 (FR20), as part of the Strategic Defence and Security Review.

A worried member of the public, who did not want to be named, contacted the Gazette saying that it looked as though it may recommend closure of the town’s TA Centre, on Lisburn Terrace.

But a spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence said this was pure speculation.

and it was far too early to say either way.
