East Sussex Music Service is still under Local Council control (many Music Services have now become independent charities). A new round of Council cuts have proposed £80k to be taken from the Music Service resulting in the proposed closure of all non-statutory music provision in the district.
This would naturally have a shocking reduction in the opportunities for music-making and learning across the County, especially for children.
A petition has been set up to fight the proposals and we would encourage people to sign up and circulate the link!
There is also a group on Facebook called Save East Sussex Music and the hashtag for Twitter is #SaveESMS and #saveourservicenow
