The Friends of Barham Park Library are selling handmade Christmas cards to raise money for their fight to reopen the service in its original home.

The group are selling cards carrying a picture of the library in the snow to fund their fight to reopen it in its Barham Park building.

The picture on the cards was taken by Councillor Paul Lorber, leader of the Liberal Democrat group, and Friend of Barham Park Library, last winter.

Friends of Barham Library member, Francis Henry, said: "As soon as he saw the heavy snow last winter Paul Lorber rushed over to Barham Park to take the best possible seasonal picture of the library building and the park.”

Barham Park Library was located in a historic building in the park until Brent Borough Council closed it last October claiming it no longer had the funds to run it.

The campaign group subsequently opened a volunteer-run part-time library in High Road, Wembley.

However, they continue to fight to reclaim the original building in the hope they could reopen it as a community library.

The cards are on sale at the Friends of Barham Library’s shop in High Road, Wembley.

The shop is open from 12pm until 5pm on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays.
