Campaign triumph!

All those wet and windy days collecting signatures for the Save our Library campaign, all the meetings where Labour and the Tories ganged up together to frustrate our campaign were worth it. Today at 9.30am the Mayor Maureen Fearn was joined by Jean Alexander to open our town centre library. Jean played a crucial role in the successful campaign and it was appropriate she was the first resident to return her books to the new library.
(Well actually, if we are being strictly honest, I was the first user as I was about to embark on a 6 hr+ journey to Bournemouth so I used the opportunity to get a book out for the train.. Jean Alexander had no fines to pay)

I have say that the ground floor conversion of the Visiter Newspaper offices is brilliant. As the photos show the lay out and the relocated shelving work really well. There are the same number of computers in the building as there were in the Atkinson Library. (Atkinson was a former Liberal Mayor of Southport so it was appropriate that Maureen should preform the ribbon cutting ceremony)

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
