Following the result of the court case where the judge found that GCC were in breach of law regarding equality, FoML are urging our Parish Council to re-present our case urgently to GCC.
We feel that on the grounds of equality we have “vulnerable community members” who need a library in Minchinhampton with Public Library status funded by GCC and operating fully within the County Library network.
A ‘Community Library’ is none of these things and will have no security of tenure. It would operate more like a ‘club’ and it is highly likely that the GCC grant will be withdrawn in a few years and we will end up having no library facilities in Minchinhampton at all.
