Do you use Etwall Library? Is this Your Local Library?

Do you use Etwall Library? Is this Your Local Library?

Sat, 21 Apr 2018 11:00 by Justina Nurse

Derbyshire County Council are consulting on the County's Library service and this affects Etwall. The attached document details their plans for the library to be managed by the community. Etwall Parish Council have asked for our help in case it affects Willington residents. An extract from the document attached:

I wanted to take a moment to write to you about our proposals to consult on potential changes to the library service in Derbyshire, which was considered and approved by the County Council's Cabinet on 5 April.
We recognise and value the important role the library service has in our communities, which is why we have made a clear commitment in our Council Plan not to close any of our 45 libraries. However, this does not make the service immune from the many challenges facing the Council and the library service. Those changes have to address the fall in usage of libraries and reflect the resources available. On 20 July 2017 Cabinet approved a reduction to the library service budget up to 2021 of £1.6 million. We hope the attached fact sheet helps explain why we need to do this but a good analogy is we are making meals for a thousand dinner guests but we know only 750 are turning up, which in all conscience requires us to look at how we tackle this issue.

The Old School Trust Needs Support from Villagers.

The Old School Trust Needs Support from Villagers.

Willington Old School, on Castleway is holding it's AGM on Monday 26th March at 7.30pm and really really needs some more committee members. They would love anyone from the village to come along and support them (need to be over 18) as some of the members have been doing the role for over 18years and need to retire. It would be a shame to lose this wonderful facility in the village, so please pop along and say hi. No experience is needed.

We Need Your Help To Protect Our Footpaths

Have you walked any of these routes across the gravel pits to the nature reserve, the green railway bridge or simply down kingfisher lane to one of the other paths shown on the map in the last 20 years or more?

If so please collect an evidence form from the Post office, complete it and return it back to the Post Office so the Footpaths and Open Spaces Group can make a bid to Derbyshire County Council to protect them. Alternatively use this link to the form on DCC: More »

http://www.derbyshire.gov.uk/images/User%20Evidence%20Form_tcm44-21467.pdf

Without your help we could lose these paths and our legal right to walk them.

Thank you.
