Public meeting following the Carnegie Friends Christmas Fair to discuss action on the planning application currently filed with Lambeth. The changes proposed in this application will cause drastic, irreversible changes to the Carnegie building. There are many technicalities that need to be understood to object effectively. Come to the meeting to find out more.
The meeting follows the Spirit of Libraries Christmas Fair from 11am – 3pm. There will of course be our famous tea & cake stall, community stalls, craft stalls, a raffle and other delights.
Since 1999 the Friends have held an annual Winter Fair. Over the years it became one of the most popular events in the Herne Hill calendar. With the library closed we cannot stage a full-scale fair; but we will hold a modified ‘Spirit of Libraries’ event to afford some seasonal cheer and remind everyone we are still here, and organise opposition to the new planning application.
