Village Library

A  good team effort has produced a temporary library  in the Bus Shelter.

Especial thanks to Angela Sellars for sorting the books and stocking the shelves.

Please use the facility but please do bear in mind that it should not become a dump for books that should really be recycled!

Its success will depend upon us all playing our part and respecting the very simple instructions displayed on site.

We hope to make it a permanent feature. The only stipulation from Broadacres, who own the Bus Shelter, is that we will have to dismantle it if the Bus Service is restored. As it is over 30 years since we had the last bus I think it will be safe.

There is a wide cross section, including children’s books and puzzles etc, on offer.
