Nearly 80 per cent of residents who filled out a survey on proposed budget cuts said the council is right to axe £72,000 funding for the Ashfield Festival, according to the district council.

Around 1,000 people completed the survey on-line or using paper copies about Ashfield District Council’s attempts to save £1.1m across 2014/2015 because of a sharp decline in Government funding.

In addition, 78 per cent of those asked also agreed with closing Huthwaite Leisure Centre to save £86,000, with 75 per cent agreeing that Edgewood Leisure Centre should go with a saving of £57,000.
