Against the rumoured Bracknell Forest Council funding cuts to South Hill Park Trust.

ARTS funding for South Hill Park could be slashed by £244,000 over the next three years if proposed budget cuts go ahead. As reported in the Bracknell News

Last week the News reported the council had agreed to a £9.5m cut to the grant they receive from central government by 2019 and had produced an Efficiency Plan to demonstrate how savings would be made.

Outlined in the plan was a proposal to slash £100,000 from the money allocated to South Hill Park arts centre in both 2017/18 and 2018/19.

The further cutbacks come on top of the £44,000 cut already made to South Hill Park's funds from the council this year and amount to a total cut of £244,000 to the centre's budget by 2019.

However councillors stressed the plan is not 'set in stone' and could be altered in coming years.

South Hill Park is a centre for excellence in a wide range of Artistic Domains. Enabling education and entertainment through the arts as well as being a meeting point for the wider community with societies, workshops and courses for local residents.

So we urge you to support us in petitioning against this action by the council.
