Councillor Peter Goater, Chair of the Parish Council said ‘I am really looking forward to opening the new community hub later in the year.’

Claire Axten, Chair of the Friends of Street Library said ‘After a long period of uncertainty the Friends are delighted with this positive move forward for Street Community Library Partnership.’

Cllr David Hall, Cabinet Member with responsibility for libraries at Somerset County Council said: “It’s great news the Parish Council voted overwhelmingly in favour of enhancing the library and community facilities. I look forward to seeing this take shape over the coming months and it becoming an even greater resource for members of the community to use.”
