My story

[p]I was lucky enough to grow up when London was well equipped with libraries. There were two within walking distance and they provided me with a window on a larger world. Whether it was an ever-expanding range of fiction, the factual knowledge to deal with homework pre-internet or the history that had resulted in my family living in London, it was all there.[/p][p]Fast forward to the present day, and we have seen widespread library closures leaving people of all ages without any library access. Cricklewood Library did not escape, and the site was sold to a property developer. The land came with a covenant that a library premises had to be provided, which it was, as an empty shell. After a colossal effort the Friends of Cricklewood Library has funded and rebuilt the library and once again it is a focal point for the community. The building work is now done and we are in the process of reopening. There is no local authority funding, so the library team now need to find the money to run the library.[/p][p]In addition to books Cricklewood Library will provide the community with a range of services including free internet access, story-telling for toddlers and communal spaces for activities such as fitness classes. A current priority is helping the cohort of children who have had their education impacted by Covid-19. The library is working with the Children’s Literacy Charity to provide free to access literacy programs which make reading fun.[/p][p]As a member of the triathlon relay team I will be riding a 20km time trial, for the first time since the 1970s! This means a lot to me, so here I am, doing my bit to help raise funds, please dig deep, every pound (or dollar or euro) helps.[/p]
