Library updates

Labour has given a very tight timetable for most of Derby's Libraries to become run by 'the community'. A local charity, Direct Help and Advice, is the only bidder to run the libraries, including Blagreaves. They hope to expand the activities from the library and will be looking for more volunteers to work from there. Do get in touch with them on 287850 and ask for Suzanne Walker, or email suzanne.walker@dhadvice.org if you'd like to find out more. Mickleover Library is going to continue to be run by the Council. More news next year.

Jumble Sale

The next Lib Dem Jumble Sale will be on the Friday 23rd February. Please look out any household items, clean clothes, bric-a-brac, toys and other items to sell. This helps pay for Focus and other campaigning for the local community.
