LIBRARIES: Good job Mr Worth but what’s next?

I am delighted that Holbeach Academy and Lincoln University have stepped forward to take on our library.

I also accept that Coun Worth has done well in the negotiations that achieved this result.

It’s worth remembering however, that he is the cabinet member who pushed through the withdrawal of funding for libraries, against the advice of the appropriate county committee, that many libraries still face an uncertain future and that the savings made are very small compared with the county total budget.

Volunteer labour will be needed to make all such rescue schemes work.

I hear that Volunteer PCSOs are next. We are increasingly relying on such decent unpaid people to provide services that should be covered by our rates. I wonder what’s next.
