Keep the Sheffield Libraries ZOOM writing group

We the undersigned petition the council to Use some of the £10,000 extra funding given to Central Library to continue running the writing group run by a member of Sheffield Libraries staff via email and ZOOM once lockdown ends.

It was recently announced that each library in Sheffield will be receiving an additional £10,000 funding to to spend on whatever is deemed appropriate.

During the current lockdown, the writing and poetry groups which usually take place at Central Library have taken place instead via email and a weekly meeting using ZOOM video conferencing software.

These have kept morale up, have reached an international audience with participants from Oslo and other places in the world as well as Sheffield and have given people improved writing skills.

This petition asks that some of the £10,000 extra given to Central Library this year is used to pay for a ZOOM subscription, staff time and any other necessary resources to enable this excellent activity to continue in addition to the face-to-face writing groups held at Central Library once lockdown ends.
