Campaigners have handed over a petition to Number 10 Downing Street, in their fight to halt changes to libraries across the county.

They gave in the petition along with a book of thoughts and memories, in a bid to draw the attention of Prime Minister David Cameron to the situation over libraries.

The delegation included Julie Harrison, former head teacher of Chad Varah Primary School in St Giles, John Hough a labour county councillor representing Louth South, Maurice Nauta, a Nettleham resident and former assistant director for libraries, and Simon Draper and Timber Draper from Lincoln.

The group all walked up to the doorstep of number 10 and Mrs Harrison handed in the petition and book.

Mrs Harrison said afterwards: “I cannot believe that David Cameron and the people who work on his behalf will fail to support our campaign. I am hoping they will speak to Lincolnshire County Council.

“There is no debate to be had. I have not met anyone yet who has said that libraries are not vitally important.”
