Campaign to save library
TRADERS are campaigning to save an important 'educational and social facility' in Worle.
TRADERS are campaigning to save an important educational and social’ facility in Worle.
Last month the Weston & Somerset Mercury revealed how an email had been sent to a handful of North Somerset councillors asking for suggestions that could save the local authority nearly £900,000.
One of the ideas was to shut four of the area’s libraries, including the one in The Maltings in Worle.
So the High Street traders’ association has decided to show its support for the facility.

Member Phillip Press said: “We oppose any plans that would jeopardise the future of this very important educational and social village amenity, as well as the possible job losses.
“Along with the community centre, the library is the only public meeting place we have in Worle and is enjoyed by young and old.

“The council spent money on upgrading the library so to close it now would be a retrograde step at a cost to local ratepayers, both financially and socially.”
