Coffee Morning

6th July 2019 10am to 1pm

Come along and join us at our Coffee Morning!

There will be Coffee, Tea, Soft Drinks and a selection of Home Made Cakes to purchase.

If the ‘Hot Weather’ holds on and you don’t fancy a hot drink we have a variety of Ice Lollies to purchase.

Our resident Avon lady, Teresa Robinson, will also be attending with a selection of Make Up, Perfumes, Spritzs, etc.  10% of the money she takes is donated to the library so if you make a purchase you will be assisting in keeping the library running.

Teddy Bear's Picnic 

5th July - 2.30pm to 3pm

We will be holding a Teddy Bear’s Picnic for all pre-school children on Friday 5th July.  The children and Teddy’s will be treated to sandwiches, little cakes and a drink.  Pop along and join in the fun.

A Fun Activity Afternoon is in the planning for the 16th August.  There will be various indoor and outdoor activities for the children to take part in.

Summer Reading Challenge 

Space Chase

This year the theme for the Summer Reading Challenge celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the first Moon Landing.  The challenge is open to children from the age of 4 to 11.  When the children register they will be given a ‘Space Chase Mission Folder’ to get them started.  All they have to do is read six books over two visits to the library.  After reading the books they will receive stickers to put in their folder.


If they complete the challenge they will be awarded a medal and certificate.


You can sign up your child / children from Saturday 6th July – the date of our Coffee Morning so you could indulge in a coffee and cake whilst registering your child / children for the challenge.

Volunteers Social Evening

On the 7th June a group of Volunteers attended a ‘Social Event’ at the Heathcote Arms for a Skittles Evening.  The volunteers and their partners were split into two teams for two games of skittles, with a welcome break mid-way for a Supper and to top up their drinks.


The evening was finished off with a ‘Last Man Standing’ game which involved each player trying to knock the skittles down and were out of the game if no skittles were knocked over.  A bottle of wine was presented to the overall winner.


It was also a chance for the volunteers to meet other volunteers they might not have met due to the different shifts that take place.
