You are invited to attend the AGM of the Community Association at Levenshulme Library at 2.00 pm on Saturday 23rd March. Nominations are sought, with seconders, for the roles of Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.
LCA is working with a large group of campaigners and groups, like the Over 50s Swimming Club and Asian Ladies Swimming Group, who want to make sure the Council keeps the baths open and that they understand the need for privacy, which is the joy of having two pools at levy baths.
Library users are being asked to write letters as well as complete the Consultation forms to show what the Library means to each of us – not just a source of book borrowing, but a place to meet, a heart of our community.
Decisions will be taken in mid-April about keeping our Carnegie Library open until a new Library is established for Levenshulme. Please write to Cllr Richard Leese with your views. Copies can also come in to the LCA. Please sign the Petition available in POD and the Inspire Centre.
Closing the Baths and Library?
We protest proposal to close community buildings in Levenshulme.
The Levenshulme Community Association is surprised that a previous promise to keep Levenshulme Baths open until a new centre is ready appears to have been totally abandoned in response to Government cuts to Manchester’s Rate Support grant. It seems to be symbolic of defeat! The Community Association wishes to protest about this precipitous decision. Local people want to be involved. We will seek an amendment to the budget recommendations, which have not yet been signed off.
