Sorry folks, I tried to post a link to this story this morning, but mobile internet failed and the article was mangled by cycberspace.
It seems that those who feel strongly about the attack on learning and culture in Walsall – namely, cuts to Leisure Services, who oversee leisure centres,libraries museums and the like – are gathering support. Over at the excellent ‘The Bookworm Turns‘ blog, the literary defender of the proud tradition of free libraries in Walsall has welcomed new support from an unexpected corner, and has posted up print-out and share guides to protest letter writing, handy for crafting complaints to our civic leaders.
Protest in any way you can. Once we’ve lost these facilities, they will not return. Rumour has it that every Walsall library not in a major urban centre will be closed. This is scandalous, no more, no less.
