No children here, thank you

Well ... those chickens are coming home to roost more quickly than even I anticipated :-(

One of those budget grant-cuts was to take away £300,000 from Edinburgh Leisure ... I wonder how many of the local politicians that voted this cut through realised that it would lead to the closure of almost all of Edinburgh Leisure creches? I doubt very much if more than 1 or 2 did??

But really, you can't cut 300-grand from an organisation's revenue budget and expect things to continue as before ... and sadly, around £2.569million has been cut from Voluntary Organisation grants altogether.

There's going to be a lot more of this ... believe me.
