Save Rosehill in action

7 Feb

STOP THE PRESS! We made it to the Evening Star and the EADT.

Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who came along on Saturday and showed support for Rosehill Library. It was genuinely overwhelming, and I have to admit to feeling a little tearful when I got home and reflected on the day.

It was wonderful to see so many books taken out (mostly by Hazel and her family!) and so good to hear of new readers joining the library and borrowing their first books. I lost count of the number of people who said “this isn’t something I’d usually read” but buoyed on by the ‘max out your ticket’ request had picked up something new. I have a Wodehouse at home to read, I’d always meant to read him, but never quite got round to it before!

A special thank you to all those who took photographs, I’m keen to get as many on here as possible, so if you’d like them to be shared, please email them to me at and I’ll post them throughout the week. Thanks to Joe Catchpole who made this video.

Finally, I think the biggest thank you  has to go to Katy (apologies if you’re a Kate, I couldn’t remember!) who had made this marvellous sign, which says it all.

P.S. Pencil in March 5th for another day of support and protest, they’re planning one over at Save Leiston, why not let’s join in?! I hope it’s less windy!

    Well done to everyone who supported the action at Rosehill library on Saturday. I’ve just posted at our intention to stage another protest on 5th March: it would be great if other groups across Suffolk could join in. Let’s keep the fight going!
