to help operate the library will be meeting to discuss their role
in the project," Denise Emery, Acting Town Clerk, told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
"Any members of the public who have not already volunteered,
but feel they may have time or skills to help with the library,
and would like to know more about the scheme, are welcome to join
the others at this first meeting of volunteers."

would be withdrawn with effect from 1st October and the Town Council
has been negotiating a deal with the County Council to ensure
a library service is retained in Highbridge using volunteers.
