Campaigners organise protest walk to save Langney Library
The Save Langney Library Campaign is holding a protest walk from West Rise Schools, along Sandpiper Walk, Heron Walk and Kingfisher Drive on Friday (December 1)
The walk, which will be led by Stephen Lloyd MP and Langney County Councillor Alan Shuttleworth, is to demonstrate against the proposal for East Sussex County Council to close the Langney library along with six other libraries and the mobile library service.
Councillor Alan Shuttleworth said, “People of all ages will be affected, and the walkers will include local residents, including parents and children from West Rise Schools. Many have already signed the petition to Save Langney Library.
“We invite all members of the community to join the Walk, and send out a clear message that Langney Library is a vital part of the Langney community. If the library were to be closed it will hit the youngest and most elderly people the hardest.
“I have had really productive meetings with the Langney Shopping Centre management. I hope that East Sussex County Council will listen to our representations.”
