The council has delayed its decision on which bidder will get the contract to Manor House library until Wednesday February 8th. You are welcome to join us on Wednesday the 8th February, 5.30pm, the evening of the decision. A few of us must be there to protest to the Mayor & Cabinet members trooping in, and proffer a viable alternative. After that from 7:30pm we’ll have a planning meeting in the Catford Constitutional Club in the downstairs lounge, (just up the road, down an alleyway) to put together and rehearse the next action.
Before their decision, we will be writing to the Mayor and Cabinet, as well as informing press of the scandalous story. We’ll endeavour to be outside Manor House and Catford Library a couple of times in the next few weeks raising awareness.
Templates for letters of protest will be available here soon.
We are planning to attend the Speak up for Libraries conference. If you can afford the £20 early bird rate that ends on the 18th January, please get a ticket. Join us and help us mobilise other campaigners for future actions.
