A BIG thank you to everyone who signed our petition. In the end we managed to get 2,374 signatures. It was handed in to the council in September by Anthony Vick, Rachelle Shepherd-DuBey and Prue Bray.
The large number of signatures was easily enough to pass the threshold for getting the petition debated at a meeting of the whole council. This is the first time that a petition has had enough signatures to force such a debate in Wokingham.
The debate is taking place on THURSDAY 17th NOVEMBER at 7.30 pm during the Council meeting at the the Wokingham Borough Council offices in Shute End, Wokingham. We hope that as many of the people who signed the petition will come as possible to see what the outcome is.
Rachelle, Anthony and Prue will be at the Council offices from 7 pm to greet people and to explain what will happen in the meeting. But if you would like to know more beforehand, please get in touch by emailing the Save our Libraries in Wokingham campaign at firstname.lastname@example.org
