AGM – 4TH APRIL 2020 – 12PM

The Trustees give notice that we shall be holding our AGM on

Saturday 4th April at Noon 

We shall be reporting on our progress and plans for the future, which will include increasing the number of volunteers, trustees and management team members.


This is an open meeting for our local community and we would welcome your attendance and support, whether you are attending as an observer or making a contribution.


As previously reported we have had a refurbishment of our back office / kitchen. 

We are very pleased with the results and as promised here are the pictures of Before and After.



On the 1st February 2020 we hosted a Chinese New Year celebration with Chinese Lanterns and other crafts to make. 

We were also given a demonstration of Taichi Fan Dancing, followed by an opportunity for our visitors to take part.

Special decorated cupcakes and Fortune Cookies were on sale, which went down well.



A good time was had by all!


We now have a selection of greeting cards available in the library supplied by Fiona of Flamingo Paperie who is regular in the library at our Coffee Mornings.


So if you have forgotten a Birthday, Anniversary or just need a Thank You card pop in to the library and purchase them here along with a stamp so that you can get it in the post as soon as possible.


We have now planned in a couple of events.  Make a note in your diary so you don’t miss them.

Posters and further information will be in the Library soon.  

If you would like the library to host any other event please pass your suggestions on to our Volunteers and these can be discussed at our Events Meeting.

Spring Festival - 2nd May 10am to 1pm

Decorate a Pot and grow a Sunflower competition.

The person with the tallest sunflower will receive a prize.  The date of the judging will be confirmed at a later date when the flowers are in bloom.

If you would like a stall at a cost of £10.00 for this event please ask the volunteers for a booking form.  Get a form early as space is limited!

Special Themed Coffee Morning 

Saturday 4th July – 10am to 1pm

Your content goes here...

Rather than our usual cakes we will be serving Scones – with jam and cream or, if you prefer, savoury scones.  You can enjoy these with a pot of tea or a mug of coffee

Quiz Night at the Library

We are hoping to plan in two Quiz Nights at the Library during this year.  One of which will be in September.  We will keep you informed of the dates when confirmed.


Did you know that we Hire the library for events?  Have you a Birthday coming up and want to hold a party?  Do you have a need for a meeting place on a regular basis or have a one-off event that you are holding? 


Then have a chat with our volunteers for details or head over to our website and complete the Hire of the Library form and we will be in touch to discuss your event with you.


A reminder that our Yoga & Relaxation sessions will be returning on 24th March 2020.  The cost of each session is just £5.00.


All the proceeds of these sessions are donated to the library which all helps to keep the library running.


We are always happy to welcome new Volunteers at the library.

Computer knowledge is not necessary as there are other ways that volunteers can contribute to the running of the library such as filing books, tidying shelves, making drinks and helping at events, etc.


You don’t need to volunteer every week, you can just check the rota and pop your name down for a shift where there is a gap.  We have now arranged for split shifts on a Thursday afternoon and on Saturday morning, so if you feel a three hour shift is too much, you can put your name down for an hour and a half shift on each of these days . 


Maybe you have some time to help with our Events, Grants & Fund Raising Committee which meet on a Monday evening every couple of months.  Or perhaps you would like to become a Trustee!


Ask our volunteers for a signup sheet or visit our website, www.lfelibrary.org and apply online.

Any help would be appreciated.
