Local Anstey resident, Philip Knight, has arranged a public meeting to discuss the future of Anstey library.
He is calling for people who are willing to volunteer to work in a library, as well as those wishing to be involved in setting it up.
The meeting was held in Anstey’s Jubilee Hall on Monday 11th August at 7:00pm.
If you were unable to attend the meeting but still wish to be involved in some way you can email Mr Knight at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There’s just over a month to go for you to have your say on the proposed new approach to working with communities.
The consultation is taking place until noon on 1 September and full details are on www.leics.gov.uk/communities_strategy.
The council is carrying out a consultation on how it will
- Help people and communities to support themselves and vulnerable people, reducing the demand on public services
- Devolve services – increase the ability of community groups to take over, or work more closely with services currently delivered by the council
- Ensure voluntary groups support the council to deliver its priorities on service devolution and help for vulnerable people.
