It appears once again the Independent Party are playing political games to try to frighten residents into supporting them. They have been suggesting to residents in Westborough that plans are afoot to close Westcliff Library and in Shoeburyness, in a leaflet delivered just before Christmas, that Thorpedene and Friars Libraries are at risk.
This is complete nonsense. At no time during the preparation of the budget for the coming year has any member of the Conservative administration or senior officer indicated any plan to close any of the town's libraries.
I'm sure in the lead up to the elections we will see in the Independent Party literature how they have saved their library....don't be fooled by it now boys and girls!
