The campaign may seem a little quiet at the moment, as LBWF is keeping its cards very close to its chest and no dates have been announced for the Scrutiny or Cabinet Meetings to consider the Libraries Local proposals. But even in the crazy election period, what we can do is take the chance to lobby as many of the relevant councillors as possible and make sure we are heard!
We have a handy chart of when the local councillor surgeries and ward meetings are in May (Link to pdf of this document ) – colours are not indicative of political affiliation – just to make it easier to read! Please, please try and go along to some of these and tell your representatives why the Council’s library proposals are a v. bad thing, and ask them to reject the demolition of our local library!
Many of us have had contact with the ward councilors for HH, WM and CH wards – but we need to get the Cabinet members and the Neighbourhoods Scrutiny Committee members to hear us directly too. Have a look at the dates, pick a surgery and let them know why we need to save our lovely library!
