NEWCASTLE CITY COUNCIL PLANS TO MAKE £90 MILLION POUNDS OF SAVAGE CUTS OVER THE NEXT 3 YEARS WHICH WILL UNFAIRLY EFFECT CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE AND RUIN OUR NEIGHBOURHOODS AND COMMUNITIES.
THESE CUTS ARE SO BRUTAL, THEY WILL LEAVE THE COMMUNITIES WE LIVE IN BROKEN FOR DECADES TO COME WITH A LACK OF ESSENTIAL SERVICES, PLACES TO GO, PLACES TO MEET AND THINGS TO KEEP US OCCUPIED.
