Views wanted on volunteers plan for Cheadle library

By timesecholife on in All News, Community News

FAMILIES in Cheadle are being asked for their views on plans to turn the town's library into a community-run venture.

The High Street facility is among 20 in Staffordshire that will be affected by a county council initiative to save almost £1.3 million.

And it has emerged this week that Cheadle, as one of the ‘least busy’ libraries on the list, is one of four that could be run by volunteers in future.

Members of the public are being given a chance to comment on the idea during a three-month consultation exercise which started this week.

But town councillor Pete Wilkinson insists the move would be a backward step and is calling on residents to oppose it.
