Yesterday evening (3rd March) residents of Matson gathered to hold a protest and vigil for their library, which faces closure under GGC’s plans, and will only remain open in any form if it is run and funded by the community.
Organiser, the Rev. Keith Hebden, reports that over 60 people came to the protest itself, with a further 30 attending an afternoon photocall for the local media.
Congratulations to all involved in organising the event. It is heartening to see that communities across Gloucestershire haven’t given up the fight to save their library from GCC’s brutal cuts.
