StandUp4Shepton.com (SU4S.com) - The Only Campaigning Website that Fights for a Better and Fairer Shepton Mallet.
PEOPLE POWER WINS IN SHEPTON! (Watch our campaign film: "WE LOVE LIBRARIES" - www.WeLoveLibraries.co.uk) We get to keep our library - for now - but 1 in 3 county libraries will be lost for ever - and the rest will suffer a 20% cut in opening hours. Somerset's Tories have, ostrich-like, chosen to not even consider back office savings that could have kept all of the County's libraries open without cuts in frontline services. Both the Conservative Leaders of Mendip District Council and of Somerset County Council continue to weep crocodile tears while slashing and burning services and irreversibly damaging our quality of life - with cuts to our libraries, youth services, bus services, elderly and vulnerable adult care services, cuts to road maintenance, cuts to extended schools projects, cuts to ALL arts projects and cuts to voluntary groups. Blind to their social responsibilities, they remain driven by party dogma as they savage Somerset's services and try to blame everyone else but themselves.
Shepton Mallet is an historic market town in Somerset. The town has suffered from poor planning decisions made by weak, misguided councillors for 40 years. It's now a town that has started to fight back to put a stop to its destruction.
Shepton was featured throughout the BBC ONE history series - "TURN BACK TIME - THE HIGH STREET" first screened in November-December 2010.
