Save South Chingford Community Library



I'm signing because I've been a volunteer at South Chingford Community Library since March 2015 and don't want to have to leave a job where I'm well respected and have made a lot of good friends in that time

I know what an important community contribution South Chingford Library makes to its immediate area and further beyond
Also the cost of retaining this provision is minimal compared to the money Waltham Forest local authority spends in other areas - such as its heated toilet seats in the Town Hall!

I am a volunteer at SCCL and know its value to the community

The library is an amazing community-led facility which has saved the Council 100,000s through it’s delivery model and must be retained.

The Community Library is an essential meeting space for so many of our residents, local charities and organisations.
We must not let it be closed. Once it is gone it can't be replaced.

I think the present leadership of Waltham Forest Council is contemptible and self-serving despite being nomilally Labour. and totally uninterested in the wants and needs of its electorate. They need their arms twisting to save important local amenities like this.
