Stop cuts to Children’s Centres to pay for Battle of Medway Commemorations

Petition via 23 Degrees

Stop cuts to Children's Centres to pay for Battle of Medway CommemorationsSign 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.
