Croydon and Wandsworth hold exploratory talks with LSSI

"Mr Fisher told the Advertiser: "I have no problem with the chief executive meeting with LSSI. I didn't know the meeting was going ahead but I am pleased that it did."
Mr Fisher said the council would be talking over the next few weeks to "a whole host of people" who could have the potential to run the library service. He added: "When you start market testing like this you don't have to be a genius to realise that LSSI are coming to talk to us."

  1. "This is yet another tall tale by the looks of it. If the council is talking to anyone it is certainly not the residents. They have not even announced the market testing exercise officially. Campaign groups such as ours are still completely left in the dark, although the council encourages residents to start a campaign to have their views heard.... they fail to engage and questions have gone unanswered. We are on facebook, twitter, email, and have our own website. Croydon are failing to inform residents and to engage effectively with those with a keen interest in these issues, yet quick to meet with LSSI. This raises serious questions." - 'Sanderstead Library Campaign Group'
