History Centre To Stay Open

Published by on Sunday, 21 February 2010One Comment

Many were relived to hear that the council’s plan to close the local History Centre has been cancelled. Good to see that the council are taking note of people’s views in the press and through the petition facility on the council’s website.

    Although most of the History Centre petition was via the Council site, it was owing to many alerting others to it that word spread. Other petitions do not get many hits. That is, people are not automatically looking at the poorly publicised Council petitions site. In most cases, people would do far better with a clipboard and pen, which takes less time and bother than trying to alert residents to a site and then going through the palaver of registering.

    Generially a petition is worthless. It does nothing of its own accord, and is counted as one objection, but has to be part of a wider campaign. All too often people assume that to have signed a petition means that they have “done their bit”.

    In the campaign to save Hove Library, I decidedfor these reasons that a petiton and publicm eeting should be ruled out. Indeed, the latter would have risked undermining one’s credibility if it brought out the nutter brigade.
