So how did it go? It was actually quite amazing. Guess how many people spoke up in support of Robert Rams
Perhaps the sweetest moment was the old dear who told me that she'd never used the internet until her granddaughter had shown her my blog about the library. She then said she'd never used the word twat either, till she read about Robert Rams
So how have we done so far. When I counted the completed forms this morning, we had 780 signatures from the 2 saturday stalls in Mill Hill, and the one in East Barnet. I've been told there are at least 200 from the Finchley Stall and we have over 100 for the online petition. That means that in total we have collected over 1,000 signatures. My objective was to collect 500 initially. We got 250 for the 1 hour free parking in Mill Hill petition. The fact that we've already receive twice that is a massive achievement. I hadn't anticipated how many people would want to come on board and help.
One other thing which was hugely pleasing is the fact that the Barnet press sent a reporter down. He took a stack of photos of people signing up. He commented on how many people were taking the leaflets reading them and then coming back to sign.
I will keep you updated, but please sign the on line petition. Please copy and paste this link into an email, stick it on your facebook wall and say "SIGN THIS". Email it to your four best friends in Barnet and say "please sign it". Email me for a hard copy of the petition if you want to collect a few signatures. When your done, I'll come and collect it. From what I've seen, the vast majority of residents in Barnet feel strongly that we should reject the closures. It will only take 1 minute to sign this petition. Please do it now, if you haven't.
