Battle to Save Library

The battle to save Milford on Sea Library continues.

The Milford on Sea Village Association (as the Landlords to Hampshire County Council Library Service) thanks everyone who attended the meeting in the Village Hall on Wednesday 27th August regarding volunteers and the future of Milford Library. 

Gloria Grantham-Hill, Trustee and Chairman of Milford Village Association said; "We were greatly honoured by the attendance of the Leader of Hampshire County Council, Councillor Roy Perry and County Councillor Alan Rice TD who both made very helpful contributions to the debate."

At the meeting very strong feelings were voiced regarding keeping the status quo and with the apparent small savings that may be made by introducing a voluntary service, it proved to be 'lively meeting' with a packed house!

Anyone wishing to make their views known before Hampshire County Council makes the momentous decision on the fate of Milford Library, please send them (within the next 10 days) to:

Councillor Keith Chapman, Bracken Lodge, The Glen, Pamber Heath, Tadley. RG26 3DY

Please also send a copy to: M.V.A. Trustees, c/o Milford Village Hall, 2 Park Road, Milford-on-Sea.

The more Milford protests, the more chance of saving the library for the many local people that use it.
