Local Council elections on 2 May could see the political balance in the county shift leading to changes in the policy and priorities for MLA services. The timetable indicates that no binding decision on outsourcing will have be taken by then – a new administration may decide not to continue with the process or to change its parameters. The three MLA support groups have contacted all the political parties in the County asking them to give a clear Manifesto commitment to a sustainable future for the County’s Museum, Library and Archives Services and asking for continued dialogue and discussion with them.

Please help by writing letters to local newspapers or contacting Councillors & candidates asking them to confirm their support for these services. To find your Councillor’s details click here or here
