I READ in the paper that Hobkirk House Day Centre, in New Malden, has been renamed the Nobel Centre.
I should like to know who instigated the change of name - was it the officers or the Lib Dem administration?
It is a pity that the name Hobkirk has been eliminated from the day centre, as it was Mrs Hobkirk who did so much for the community.
However, I am sure that local residents in the area will still refer to it by its former name, as they ponder the significance of the name Nobel.
