The meeting was well attended although there had been a number of apologies sent because of Holidays. Two Sefton Councillors attended; Conservative leader Cllr Peter Papworth (Blundellsands) and the Labour’s Cllr Michael Roche (Victoria)
Simon explained that Councillors would not be asked to join the committee as that could lead to conflicts of interest at the present time.
Cllr Roche offered that Councillors of all parties are happy to work together to help the committee on this issue and that they are accustomed to working in unison on most council committees.
Cllr Papworth said that the Crosby area; WILL have a Library. As yet it is not possible to judge where it might be located.
Simon reported that he had a meeting with the head of Sefton MBC library services and that he was in consultation with a prominent local businessman regarding a business plan.
Simon called for volunteers for a committee and a secretary, chair and other members were proposed and seconded.
The official minutes and full details of the Committee membership will be published here once available.
