Well this is a seemingly welcome initiative in Liverpool and it shines Sefton’s Labour rulers in a very poor light indeed as they simply shut libraries in the Borough despite calls for innovative volunteer alternatives to be taken on board.

To this day I can’t get my head around the stubborn refusal of Sefton’s Labour-run Council who just would not embrace and encourage volunteer-run alternatives to library closures.

    We in Aintree Village tried to encourage people to keep our library open but the ex Leader of the council did not like the flack, so like most of his tribe made sure that Aintree Village Library would never be open again? Hence the closure and of course good management on building up of Housing stock. Clever move WHAT!!!!!!!!!!
