Users brave heat to press for library reopening

Said one: “We know the Council is trying to obtain a new partner organisation to take over Cobbett … but feel frustrated that this is taking far longer than originally stated. It is clear that there is still a need in the area for the many services and activities which Cobbett used to host, and we hope it won't be much longer before these can start to be restored.” It’s understood three organisations are interested in running it.
