I understand Uttlesford District Council is withdrawing funding from the Tourist Information Centre.

This will mean, unless other steps are taken, that this invaluable and popular facility will close, the ever-helpful staff being made redundant. We all know that - through no fault of most present members - the council faces a financial crisis, but this particular cut is one that must be resisted.

At the very least, there should be a stay of execution while Saffron Walden Town Council explores the possibility of taking over full responsibility, perhaps with funding contributions from the surrounding village parish councils.
