Campaign Updates!We have had a number of results from activities this week:
Door-to-Door CampaignSeven of our hardy Save Burnage Library campaigners volunteers to brave walking in the freezing cold on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th March to canvas for campaign support in Burnage door-to-door. To reward the efforts of these tough team, we've had 240 respondents agree to write letters to the council.
Thank you so much to those that volunteered part of their weekend to help with the campaign and deliver leaflets to residents of Burnage.
Kingsway Federation SupportAfter an email was sent to the heads of the local primary and secondary schools asking for any support they could give, the Kingsway Federation, the governing body running both Green End and Ladybarn primary school's responded with a fantastic letter signed by the chair in support of our campaign, objecting to the closure of Burnage Library.
The chair highlights the desire of parents in the area for their children to do well and gain literacy skills. The letter also highlight the importance of access to library internet resources which would close under these proposals.
The Save Burnage Library campaign team thanks the Kingsway Federation for their wholehearted support.
