Campaign for Bedfordshire Music
Posted on November 1, 2010
Central Bedfordshire Council has recently announced that funding to Bedfordshire Music is to be cut to ZERO from April 2012.
More details at Campaign for Bedfordshire Music and in the letter below from Catherine Rose.
This would be a sizeable chunk of the Bedfordshire Music budget being cut and would mean either increases in tuition costs or presumably the loss of some groups or music centres.
The good news is that none of this is set in stone yet, so you can do your part by writing to your local MP to let them know how important the Bedfordshire Music service is.
If you've ever benefited from using the Bedfordshire Music service (through its ensembles, Saturday morning music centre, music lessons, instrument provision, etc), or know someone that has, then please write to your local MP and help raise the profile of the Campaign for Bedfordshire Music.
If you are thinking of writing a letter in protest at the 100% cut in cash funding to the Bedfordshire Music Service planned for April 2012, PLEASE CAN YOU DO SO BEFORE 12TH NOVEMBER?
I've just realised that the Council is currently reviewing the music service and will have finished this process by 15th November, so we need to get their attention before then.
Anyone needing more information or doesn't know what I'm talking about, please visit http://michaelerose.moonfruit.com/#/campaign/4545173370.
PLEASE SEND THIS ON to anyone you sent information on to before.
I'm particularly keen to get this to PARENTS, STUDENTS AND TEACHERS but I do not have individual emails so please keep it going viral!
The website has had 1337 visitors since it went live on Friday lunchtime - keep up the energy!
