Forest Hill Library - Proposed Cut to Funding

The cuts are surely not a surprise to anyone are they? Lewisham have been telling us about them all year and ran a long consultation exercise where they asked us to go onto a modeller and choose were we would make just to balance the books. I assume everyone did that as it was a direct consultation.

I'm not for one minute in favour of the cuts and think what they have decided on Libraries is wrong. When I did the modeller I could get to the cuts they need to make but it meant severe reductions on parks spending, cuts to all back office functions (easy to go after but can have a devastating effect), putting charges up on some services - leisure, sport etc - reducing housing benefit and local housing allowance and council tax reduction (not good news if you depend on this I know), and some other things which I now forget. I was keen to protect social services for the young and elderly, schools and libraries.

The problem is the cuts have to fall somewhere and for all the talk of telling the Council to object to central government etc, that isn't going to make one jot of difference. So stand by your beds - more cuts, lots more cuts, are coming.

Well done for raising the issue but I think this campaign was always doomed to fail.
