Void in the community

Have your say

So we are “treated” to further “improvements” from the Stannington library group, with the previous children’s area now filled with a coffee vending machine and reclaimed garden furniture.

Is this an attempt to give the volunteers the chance to play Starbucks or Costa Coffee?

They do seem to be short of things to do now the number of visits has collapsed.

This and the fact the library, along with the 15 other volunteer libraries are non-statutory (read: easier to close), fills me with dread about the future of our library service.

Oh how I long for the return of our three lovely library staff, Ann, Linda and Christine.

The huge dip in visits since they left is a sign of they void they have left in our community.
