library_protest_sq.pngFollowing the demonstration outside Marylebone Library on 5th November, Councillor Adam Hug has organised another petition calling for a halt to Westminster Council’s proposed £750,000 cut from the libraries budget:

“We the undersigned petition Westminster City Council to halt its planned cut of £750,000 from the library service budget that would see the equivalent of 17 ½ full-time members of staff, mostly librarians, lose their jobs. The council should open a full public consultation and find alternative methods for raising the funding required in order to protect Westminster’s vital library service.”

queen_mother_sports_centre_sq.pngSport and leisure centres are a vital part of our communities - and for the community of Victoria and Pimlico, London SW1, that facility is the fantastic Queen Mother Sports Centre.

The centre offers local residents three swimming pools, a gym, basketball and squash courts and more - including a health and fitness clinic.

But now it's under threat.

Westminster Council is currently considering proposals to develop the site and surrounding area. There's a public consultation on the plans which you can take part in it here (it closes on 18 November 2016).

Westminster's Labour councillors are calling on the Council to protect the sports and leisure services currently offered by the site. 

We've set up a petition that you can sign right here. If you care about keeping these services for the community as much as we do, please add your name to it and spread the word!
