Success for Jacksons Lane Community Centre funding campaign

Commenting on today’s announcement by the Arts Council to continue this year’s funding for Jackson Lane, Rachel Allison, Lib Dem candidate in the Highgate council by-election, said:

“This is wonderful news. It’s a tribute to all the people at Jacksons Lane and in the local community who supported the campaign to protect the centre’s funding. The loss of a such a big grant at just a few weeks’ notice would have been a devastating blow, and I am delighted that the Arts Council has seen sense.”

Local Lib Dem Leader and Highgate councillor Neil Williams, who along with local MP Lynne Featherstone has been running a high-profile campaign to protect the Centre’s funding, adds:

“I’m relieved and delighted for Melanie Sharpe, her whole team, and the whole community- but in agreeing to carry on funding, the Arts Council have laid down a clear challenge to Haringey – provide the support and investment in your own building that it clearly needs. Lynne Featherstone and I made it clear, face-to-face, with the Arts Council that we would work tirelessly to make sure that this happens. We now have a year to make sure that Haringey Council delivers.”
