Parish Council website
Save our Library Site
The August Parish Council Newsletter proposed 2 options for the current library site. One is to sell off the site and use the income on parish council projects, including refurbishment of the Queen's Hall. The other is to refurbish both the library and Queen's Hall buildings.
The 'Save our Library Site Group' has set up a petition to go to the Parish Council on November 10th urging that the library site should not be sold, but retained as a community building. For more information and to sign the online petition click HERE.
Paper based petition forms can be found in: The Open Door; Corner Shop (Deli); Pharmacy; Post office AM PM stores; Coffee Station (after November 1st); Co-op; Capricorn; and Burley Barbers.
