Bury Times: 5 May
Bury Pipeline charity which helps connect blind to the community has visit from Mayor of Bury Mike Connolly
“At the moment we don’t really need any more volunteers, but you never know, depending on the outcome of the libraries closures.”
The charity lost volunteers last July when it had to move to Tottington Library after the closure of Seedfield Resource Centre.
Several volunteers came from the south of the borough and could no longer manage to travel the distance. 
If Tottington Library closes too, it may cause similar problems.
