Hi all,

Apologies for the fact we haven't been in touch for a while. This
isn't because nothing's happening. Quite the opposite. We've just been
very, very busy. There looks to be no let up in the level of activity
and there's plenty for you to be getting involved in over the coming
days and weeks.


Unison members at Notts County Council will be on strike on Thursday
24th February. This is the day the council is meeting to set its
budget. There will also be a march from Victoria Embankment and a
rally at County Hall.

Meet: Victoria Embankment from 10am


The city council are also planning on cutting millions from their budget.

Notts Save Our Services are urging Nottingham City Councillors not to
adopt their cuts budget when they meet on 7th March.
