“Save Lincolnshire Libraries is organising a lobby of various MPS on Tue April 8th. It is being hosted by Nic Dakin MP for Scunthorpe. A number of MPs are being invited to meet us and a room has been booked from 12.30 to 2.30. Invited MPs include, party leaders, ministers and their shadows from DCMS and Education, all Lincolnshire MPs and various others.
The idea is that they will drop in and we will explain what is happening in Lincolnshire to them so that they are better informed, so that they may be able to intervene in some way and so they can consider whether legislation on libraries might not be strong enough.
We hope to also take a stroll down Downing Street…
We are planning to book a coach which will probably start from Lincoln (or possibly Mablethorpe) and call in at (probably) Grantham. Details are sketchy until we know who wants to come. There will probably be a cost of around £15 but we will seek subsidies.
Could people please register their interest by email (not Facebook or Twitter!) to Lesley Hough firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to help with planning.
She will get back to you with more details next week.
