Dukeries chiefs slam county council cuts

BOSSES at Ollerton's Dukeries College and Complex have hit out at council plans to axe funding for community services — which they say could force them to cut jobs.

Nottinghamshire County Council plans to slash the 201,000 which it currently gives the complex for hosting community facilities and activities, while also cutting around 180,000 which goes towards extended services at the school.

The move is part of 33m of savings proposed by the county council to balance its budget and the funding is set to be reduced next year and axed completely from 2011/12.
