Save the libraries: part 2 of an Inside Croydon quiz

In the second part of a special quiz highlighting widescale opposition to Croydon Council plans to close six local libraries, our simple question is…

Who said:

“Bradmore Green Library is very important to Old Coulsdon residents of all ages who find its location very convenient. In particular, I know that the Library is a vital part of the provision which the neighbouring Coulsdon Church of England Primary School offer their children. The school premises are very small and classes make regular visits to the Library as do parents, who value the internet facilities on offer there…

“I truly hope that a way can be found to retain Bradmore Green Library for the benefit of all current and future users of library services.”

Here’s a clue: it is the absentee Member of Parliament for Croydon South.

Send your answers, by email, please to Councillor Sara Bashford, Croydon’s “Cabinet member for Customer Services, Culture and Sport”, at

First prize is a book token to the value of £2.78.
