Welbeck rememberance

Save Welbeck Defence Sixth Form College

We Liberal Democrats are very proud that the magnificent Welbeck Defence Sixth Form College is based in our area. Many of us have had the pleasure of meeting the students and know what fine young people they are. The government has announced that the college is to be closed so that it assets can be sold off for redevelopment. Incredibly the government intend to close the facility in 2 years time, and yet have decided to spend the next 5 years trying to find an alternative. Welbeck is an important source of STEM students for the armed forces, and we are horrified that the Government are prepared to take this huge risk in the provision of highly skilled young people to our armed services.

Please join us in fighting to protect Welbeck and our armed services.
