A popular outdoor education centre is the latest publicly-funded facility under threat as part of budget cuts. South Cerney's Outdoor Education Centre (SCOEC) is situated within the Cotswold Water Park and owned by Gloucestershire County Council, which has confirmed that the centre's future is under review as part of the authority's bid to make £108million of savings over the next four years. Those savings will include a £3.6m reduction of the youth services budget.
