VILLAGERS are hoping bad weather has not cost them the chance to save Banwell's library service.

VILLAGERS are hoping bad weather has not cost them the chance to save Banwell's library service.

Worried residents were set to meet library bosses last week to negotiate keeping on to the popular facility.

It followed a decision by North Somerset Council to close the library building in West Street.

But the heavy snow forced many people to stay at home and the meeting was cancelled.

This week Banwell Parish Council said it would continue to try and save the facility.

Members agreed to send a letter to the district council asking for a weekly mobile service, book stand and computer terminals at the children's centre in West Street.

Councillor Angela Haden said: "We need to make sure we get the best possible deal for Banwell when the library building closes."

Banwell library is set to shut in June when the council's lease runs out on the building.
