Needham Market: More than 1,000 names on petition
MORE than 1,000 people have added their names to a petition opposing the closure of their community library.
MP David Ruffley collected the documents at the site in Needham Market yesterday and organisers said they were encouraged by the number of people that had backed the campaign.
Elizabeth Walker, one of the petition organisers, said: “He is going to take them to Westminster and present them on the floor of the House of Commons.
“We had a good turn-out of support from all sections of the community here in Needham Market.”
Suffolk County Council is consulting on cost-cutting plans which could close 29 of its 44 libraries around the county.
