Sign the petition to stop Medway Council from making £60,000 cuts to childrens services, in order to put on a Battle of Medway celebration.
Why is this important?
Medway council want to cut support for children in Medway to pay for an elaborate 10 day celebration and re-enactment of a 350 year-old naval battle – the Battle of Medway.
£60,000 will be taken from children’s services to pay for the celebrations – which include jet ski demonstrations, fireworks and over-the-top battle reenactments.
This money should be ring fenced for children’s services. As a Medway council tax payer I know where I want the money to be spent – on children!
As part of the cuts the council has proposed axing ALL 19 children’s centres, replacing them with 4 ‘super hubs’, which would also lead to job losses.
