   Library drop off at The Drover's Rest - rejected    31 July, 2014

Following a meeting with representatives from Cumbria County Council, the Parish Council and the owners of The Drover's Rest to discuss the possibility of siting a library link at the Drover's Rest, the Parish Council organised and submitted a petition to request the Library Service for a book drop.

The PC have now been informed that there is a policy of new book drops being no closer than 4 miles from the nearest library or book drop off. The book drop at Burgh-by-Sands is only 1 miles away and the request to have a book drop at the Drover's Rest has been rejected.

The Parish Council are to arrange a further meeting with the Library Service to discuss the possiblity of offering other book related activities at the Drover's Rest instead.
