Stoke Lodge Adult Education Centre at Risk of Closure

On January 17th the Director of Culture and Leisure Services announced (in a low key, internal kind of way) that Bristol's Adult Learning Service would receive no funding in the 2008/9 budget.

Cuts of £180,000 will result in the end of adult education in St. Paul's, Knowle West and Southmead, and will place the continuation of the service at Stoke Lodge at risk.

What do readers of Trym Tales think of this proposal? The proposal to cut provision at St Pauls seems particularly strange considering the brand new community learning centre that has been open less than two years on the corner of Grosvenor Road.

Your councillor would like to hear from you, I'm sure. You can find their contact details here at the City Council website.

If you wish, you can also write a statement for the Bristol City Council Cabinet Meeting of 4th of February. Your statement must be printed and include the meeting date and be sent to or hand delivered to:

Democratic Services Team
Room 220
The Council House
College Green
Bristol BS1 5TR

[All statements must be received no later than 12 noon on the 3rd of February.]
