Council cuts mean that the service is now under threat and they have launched a petition to demonstrate the scale of public support for their service. They say:
We think that the Lewisham Toy Library is worth saving. After dealing with many years of Lewisham Council’s cuts to our core funding (which are continuing), we are now being asked by the Council to pay commercial-level rent, thereby increasing our cost base.
We have lost enough already – chilcare services, the playbus and many other services that help with the development of children in the Borough. Join us in telling London Borough of Lewisham that we think they could offer more support – either by giving us lower rent, or maintaining funding, or both.
