Tractor production is up 30%

Particularly choice quotes about the library from July’s Blackheath Assembly minutes (emphasis mine):

The meeting received information that the temporary library set up at the Bakehouse has been successful to date. The resource continues to attract more people particularly children and young mothers and these numbers will only increase once the new library is up and running[…]

With regards to the main replacement library project, an £800,000 investment project is on coursee[…]

It is envisaged that the new facility will be open on the 22 November 2012 by Sir Steve Bullock, the Mayor of Lewisham and David Grant, the Mayor of Greenwich. Over the next month or two there will be a competition for the public to put forward their ideas of what the new centre should be called so there is a sense of involvement and community spirit. The competition will carry a prize of £1,000 and the winner will be announced at the opening ceremony by Sir Steve. Participants can put their entry forward via email or through the website.

Blackheath Society Newsletter

The Blackheath Society have just released their latest newsletter.  It is always well worth a read to find out what is going on around the village, particularly with regards to town planning.  Highlights include Momo Franks (unlikely to make a return, it seems), plans for a pedestrianised square near the Library, and trouble with the proposed lift for disabled people at the station.

There’s probably a paper copy in the library, and I imagine that they’ll publish it online here very soon.
