Assessment Of Crisis And COVID
The Regina Scandal
The Council says that it has ‘now received the initial findings’ and has ‘asked the investigators to do some further work to help’ it ‘improve the services … give(n) all … residents in council properties.’
‘This inquiry is just the start of a much longer-term and wider-reaching improvement programme’ the Council is ‘undertaking, which includes a review of’ its ‘housing services, and’ it ‘will make sure’ it keeps ‘residents updated on the work’ being done.
Save Croydon Libraries Up-date
Where Do The Political Parties Stand?
Campaign Statement On South Norwood
The campaign is fighting to save all of Croydon’s libraries as properly funded, staffed and stocked public libraries.
Our campaign does not therefore align with or endorse the current plans for South Norwood library, proposed by the friends’ group, who submitted a bid to run the library building and greatly reduce the library offer in order to make way for income-generating hired or rentable spaces. Their bid also proposed a sole library worker on duty which is completely unworkable, unsafe and unfair to both library workers and library users.
Our position has been made clear to the Friends’ group but we remain open to working with this group if they drop their plans and want to join our fight for properly funded, staffed and stocked public libraries.
What is not being made clear, however, is the friend’s groups plans, who are still giving the appearance of fighting for all of Croydon’s libraries, and fighting the same cause as us.
