Hi robbrockley

I've read your post and definitely wouldn't want to see cuts in any of the areas you listed.
As mentioned previously in this thread Lewisham Council seem to be wasting money on pavements being re paved and Roads being tarmaced which wasn't needed as well as scaffolding being left up to replace windows which someone told me wasn't needed either. I'm not sure of the costs on this but sure it is quite a lot.

I've been emailing all our local councillors & a few others (including someone from the South London Press) back and forth about the library cuts and have made them aware that a lot of people would be happy to pay an extra pound or 2 per month for their council tax to keep the library run by Lewisham council as a public service for the community as a whole.

I know council tax is capped by central government but I have asked them to take central government to task over this and I've also asked them why are they not fighting against central government about all these cuts they are being told to make.

I know I'm asking a lot and probably the impossible but surly someone has to try.

I strongly feel if this library proposal goes ahead it will have a massive knock on effect on FH so I'll do everything I possibly can to stop it.

Sorry for the essay guys, I'm getting off my soapbox now!
