Public Meeting a great success!

Last night's meeting at St.Andrew's School was a great success, an estimated 300 people crowded the meeting hall. Speakers from all over Headington spoke at this meeting from a teacher at Baynards School in Barton to well-known writer Peter Hitchens.

Save Headington Library Campaign Group briefed the audience about the issues behind the proposed closure of Headington Library. Councillors including Roy Darke and Roz Smith were invited to speak and answer questions.

In addition, the audience was briefed about the legal options to appeal against the County Council's closure proposals.

At the end of the meeting, people were invited to join Save Headington Library Campaign Group.


  1. I think there were a lot more than 300 people there, Nic. I expect the organizers have got a figure for the number of people who filled in those forms.
    It is a shame the meeting had to be so short but the committee can now go ahead with the campaign confident that there is a broad base of public support.

  2. Wow! I'm really glad to see this many people getting involved. Wish I could have come along. Hopefully I'll make the next!
