Connexions campaigners to lobby council

On the day the A-level results were issued in August, supporters of the Connexions service were out with their petition calling on the council to save their jobs, and the vital service they offer to young people.

I wrote about this at the time, and I am told that the day went really well, with lots of young people turning out to support the service, and around 2500 signatures collected.

On Tuesday (7 September) campaigners will be presenting their petition to the full meeting of the City Council, and holding a lobby and rally outside the meeting. If you are able to support this important service for young people, please join them in Victoria Square (outside the Council House) at 12 noon.
