Community Library Notes: February 2020

Community Library Notes
We were very busy in February, with a high attendance at the Coffee Morning due, in particular, to a presentation being made to Phil and Eve Button on their retirement from the Butcher’s Shop and to thank them for their contribution to village life. Thank you, Phil and Eve.
Thanks also to Jenny for her fun Valentine crafting session. Some of the very pretty bookmarks produced will be available at the next library in return for a donation to village hall funds.
Knit and Crochet Corner is going strongly and has presented us with another WI project – Knit for Peace UK, an initiative of the Charities Advisory Trust. Information is on their website www.knitforpeace.org.uk. Pett WI is particularly interested in their project involving knitting (or crocheting) squares on the diagonal. Please check this out with Pett WI or come and pick up a pattern at the Coffee Morning.
Any Dream Will Do is not just a TV talent contest; it is also a book by Debbie Macomber and is our reader recommendation this month. ‘An absorbing delight to read’, which also comes with a Good Housekeeping recommendation and is to be found in your Community Library – along with a host of other interesting books and a new selection, which proved very popular this month. And we have a sparkling new assortment of books for children of all ages. Asterix anyone?
David Penfold, Chair of Pett Parish Council is now available for your questions and comments at the Coffee Morning and brings with him books for sale which are written and published locally. His titles include The Fallen of Pett by Martin King and David Breakell and Pett in Sussex, the story of a village, its church and people (nearly a thousand years of history) by John N C Taylor. These are for sale and are completely separate from the lending library.
Next Community Library and Coffee Morning is from 10 – 12 at Pett Village Hall on Wednesday 4th March. Hope to see you there!
