As a governor at Holland House Infant and Nursery School, Jenny has first-hand experience of the perilous financial position facing our schools. Finances are already extremely tight and with schools across Sutton facing total budget cuts of £8.5m over the next few years, very difficult decisions must be made, with an inevitable consequence for our children’s education. Jenny is joining with parents and teachers across Sutton in opposing these cuts.
Jenny is one of the founder members of The Library Lobby, the community campaign group which has successfully raised awareness of the plight of our town centre library and put pressure on Sutton’s Town Council and Birmingham City Council to work together to keep the library open. With a short-term safety net now secured, Jenny and other campaigners are continuing to work with interested parties to find a longer-term solution.
