A summary of last week in Barnet

Barnet Primary schools were rated the second best in the country.

Barnet Library services have been awarded £2000 from the Arts Council to help make every primary school child a member of a library.

The council announced a plan to save taxpayers £120million over the next ten years in back office costs. If agreed by Cabinet this week – this will see a large investment in back office services whilst enabling us to freeze council tax.

The Mayor of Barnet held a reception in the town hall to thank all those from Barnet who volunteered during the Olympics.

The Leader of Barnet Council launched a petition to fight the closure of police stations in Barnet – http://petitions.barnet.gov.uk/PoliceStations/
