About Me

The online diary, thoughts, opinions and observations of Andy Read, Independent district councillor and former Mayor of Stroud in Gloucestershire, England. This is intended as one of the ways in which I try to inform local people what I am doing as their representative and as the only Independent councillor on Stroud District Council.

Please join me in signing open letter re: England's libraries

In just a few days there has been an overwhelming number of people adding their thoughts in an open national letter to Culture Minister Ed Vaizey regarding the future of our country's library service.

It follows a recent High Court judgment that found Gloucestershire County Council had acted illegally in pushing forward its controversial plans to close many local libraries as part of its multi-million pound cuts package.

The letter is all part of the ongoing campaign to force a rethink of this short-sighted closure plan. Please take a few moments to add your voice to the letter here.
