Libraries are the Vivacity service that people are most concerned about, after the news that the charity was handing its contract back to the council

More than 29% of voters said that the city's 10 libraries were the Vivacity sites they were most concerned about. Libraries are often threatened as councils need to make cuts, but they're such important networks for the communities.

Gyms were the second most worried about service, with 27.7% of the vote. Vivacity have been running health facilities in Hampton, Werrington, Orton, Netherton, Bretton and Dogsthorpe.

The Key Theatre was a top priority for 22.4% of respondents to our poll, with many in the arts and creative sector very worried for the future of the industry. It's expected to be one of the last to be able to get restarted as lockdown eases.

Concern for The Lido came top for 11.4% of people - with the council suggesting that the historic pool wouldn't be opening until 2021, a sad loss this summer for so many in the city.

Flag Fen and the museum received nearly 9% of the vote.

The council have not yet decided what will happen to these facilities as ownership is transferred back, but each service is important to so many in the city.
