1 November - No Trust in Bexley

Bexley Council has progressively reduced the grant to The Bexley Heritage Trust. At the time of the last cut Councillor Daniel Francis (Labour, Belvedere) said "how the hell can that be sustainable" and Finance Director Alison Griffin said "it was running a risk".

The Trust had been declining financially for several years.
