Friends of Pontesbury Library
Pontesbury residents were upset about the prospect of their local library closing.
Shropshire Council was keen to transfer libraries to communities but the community wasn’t sure how to run it.
We worked with the council and the Friends of Pontesbury Library to generate income for the library. We used the Locality Cultivating Enterprise Toolkit to help develop partnerships with parish councils and the police. The library is now not just going to remain open but has a vision and plans to develop.
