To get a seat in the council chamber for the bright start debate, please submit a public question on the issue to Mark Wall at Democratic servicesmark.wall@brighton-hove.gov.uk before noon on 9th december .that will get more supporters in and free up the public gallery for bright start parents and staff.

If you can, contact you councillors before the 16th and ask them to pop down to Brightstart, so they can see the service they are voting on closing.
10th Jan. Next full Stop the Cuts delegates meeting. Provisionally the 7:30pm Caxton Arms, North Gardens but this may change as the room is getting so crowded.
22nd Jan. National Shop Stewards Network Conference – Fight the Cuts 12pm South Camden Community Centre, London.


Also discussed and decided to print a poster campaign detailing arguments against the cuts to go up around town. Window posters to be given out, a reprint of the newsletter with more up to date dates and the website will be put together.


A local women against the cuts group has set up in Brighton, contact gloryrs64@hotmail.com or carole.hanson@brighton.ac.uk, for more info and check out the national site at http://womenagainstthecuts.wordpress.com/


We need more funds! Pip Tindall is bringing together a group to get fund raising ideas together, email her at pip.brightoncotl@gmail.com if you have ideas/want to help.
