Blackheath – where a boundary became the cuts frontline

New 853blog Blackheath – where a boundary became the cuts frontline – excellent post about the great wall of Blackheath. Can’t help wondering if there isn’t a little more tin-foil-hat-conspiracy-theory to be dug up behind the library cuts though…

Blackheath Library Read-In Protest
Great poster from the Sydenham Library blog. Come and read extracts from your favourite book in Blackheath Library on 5th Feb, from 2-4pm, as part of the library protests against the cuts.
From the Sydenham Library blog:

We are holding the read-in in conjunction with other libraries across the country. We feel it’s wrong to close essential front line services like this which benefit the whole community.

If you feel the same way please let people know. We hope to see you there.
