MINCHINHAMPTON LIBRARY REPRIEVE INITIATIVE

Our MP Mr Geoffery Clifton-Brown visited the Library on Friday 22nd June 2012 and was “happy to see so many people using the facilities”.

He spoke to library users about their concerns regarding the future of the Library and will be seeking a meeting with Cllr Mark Hawthorne, Chairman of GCC, to try and improve on the current situation, which is that the Statutory Library Facilities will stop in October 2012 and there will be an interim scheme from then until the end of the financial year.

Cllr Nick Hurst, Chairman of our Parish Council, has adopted a “pragmatic approach” and as a first step in establishing a community library in Minchinhampton MPC have set up a Community Trust.

We have requested a statement from Cllr Hurst and look forward to hearing from him with more details about the possibility of a Community Library replacing the County Library Service at the end of the financial year if we are not grated a reprieve by GCC.
