The Friends have been busy spending money.With the profit from the Quiz night we now have a new sofa for you to curl up on. Rosemary and Annabel have a new bookcase behind their desk. There are two new red noticeboards and we will shortly be covering the other faded boards. We have purchased a Data Projector from the School and the projector screen will arrive this month.
The Friends were very pleased to welcome so many of you to join us for mince pies and other delights.We know that the biggest draw was Val's famous punch! Hope you all walked home! This event enabled us to thank all our Friends and Volunteers for their support over the past year.
The AGM held in the Library was well attended. Chair of FoSCL Jill Hutchinson told the meeting about the progress FoSCL had made in the past year and our plans for the future.Adele O'Connor has resigned from the Committee and Jill thanked her for her contributions to FoSCL. June Duckworth kindly offered to join the committee and the committee was duly re-elected.
The Library Lion is a wonderful interactive play for children aged four to seven based on a heart warming story written by Michelle Knudsen.
We watched a superb performance of the play by Untied Artists. It was brilliant and exceeded our expectations. The Actors kept the young audience captivated and fully involved from the beginning to the end. We hope they will come again.
The children and their parents had a wonderful morning.
Thank you to all the teams who entered
The Winning Team was Comets, who won by answering the tie break question – 'Including the antenna on the top, in metres, how tall is the Eiffel Tower?’
The Quiz raised £783 towards Library Funds
The raffle was particularly successful due to the wonderful prizes we received from our most generous contributors.
