A flood of complaints about proposed Council funding cuts has prompted The Canterbury Times and The Kentish Gazette to ask its readers to submit their own questions which will be put to Councillor John Gilbey.

The proposed cuts are aimed at shaving £3m from Canterbury Council's budget, and will reportedly include shutting museums and public toilets, raising parking charges, and scrapping Christmas Lights. There will also apparently be job losses, sports funding will be cut, and local council offices closed down.

What's your take on the Council's budgeting headache?
