Lincolnshire library campaigners to travel down to Westminster

The campaign's

The campaign's "Big Library March" saw 400 people descend Steep Hill in Lincoln last year.

 

On Tuesday April 8, library campaigners from across Lincolnshire will be going to London to lobby the Prime Minister, the Government and MPs. Save Lincolnshire Libraries will be taking a coach load of people to a meeting at the House of Commons to press their case to keep what they consider to be a “proper” library service in the county.

The coach has four main pick up points at Mablethorpe, Louth, Lincoln, and the Deepings to enable people from across the county to join the campaign and travel to London to lobby MPs.

Phil Dilks, spokesperson for Save Lincolnshire Libraries, said: “What this is about is ensuring that our case is heard not only locally but at a national level. While we want the County Council to start talking to us about how a better library service can be delivered, the Government and MPs need to understand how important libraries are.

“They need to help us change the County Council’s mind and also ensure that libraries are maintained and developed in the future.”

Anyone who would like to join in the campaign should contact Save Lincolnshire Libraries on 01507 358650 or email at sll@southsomercotes.fsnet.co.uk.
