Penkridge Events Diary
Please send details
of any event you would like to publicise, by email to the
(webmaster at penkridge.org.uk) or phone him on 712733. We would suggest you do not publicise ordinary group meetings for your members,
but stick to events where the general public are invited and welcome. You
could be embarrassed if half of Penkridge turn up to a Committee Meeting!
And the webmaster will be embarrassed if he ever gets a date wrong - so please
tell me. Please always check with the organisers
of the events, just in case dates have changed
and we haven't been informed - but we will do our best
to make sure the information is accurate and up-to-date.
We would strongly advise all Penkridge organisations to include their major events in this Diary so that others do not organise an event that may clash.

Tuesday 16 January 2018 - THE FUTURE OF OUR LIBRARY? - 3 TO
6PM - YET ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO CLOSE OUR LIBRARY EVEN AFTER 2,500 PENKRIDGE
PEOPLE SAID NO 3 YEARS AGO. They are looking for
Penkridge and 3 others in the county to become "Community Managed"
libraries, with no professional staff employed there. Only machines
and volunteers. A larger proportion of the population of our
parish use our library than the Stafford population use their library so why
is this happening. The County Council have chosen Penkridge as
their first port of call in their consultation exercise and have given us
very little notice. BUT IF YOU CAN, PLEASE POP IN BETWEEN 3 AND
6pm to put your views to whoever they send down for 3 hours. And
please tell the Friends of Penkridge Library as together with Penkridge
Parish Council, they will be putting your views strongly to the County
Council, as you can individually, by 1 April 2018. It will
be a major item on the Parish Council's Agenda at their 8 February meeting.
Come along and make your views known in the public participation session or
write to the Parish Council OR the Friends of Penkridge Library.
COME ALONG IF YOU POSSIBLY CAN SO YOU CAN QUESTION THE ACTION THE COUNTY COUNCIL ARE PROPOSING TO TAKE.

not, the meeting will elect a chairperson.
