SUNDAY SUN : 3rd January
Protestors’ day of action over council’s ‘attack on children’
Crowds of families gathered to warn of the consequences of savage budget cuts that would hit youngsters in Newcastle’s West End hard.  …….. Tony Durcan, director of libraries and lifelong learning at the council, said:  “Many of our libraries will remain open, operating in the same building as other shared community services, like customer service centres and shared housing schemes, and we hope others will stay open through the support and goodwill of local residents.”
