  • St. Agnes Library will be displaying two large banners throughout March as part of the wider commemoration of the First World War.
  • The banners, which are on loan from local resident George Mannell, form the basis of our WW1 theme that includes poppies made by our storytime children, poems selected by our poetry circle and a wide range of books covering everything from the horror of the trenches to the art and poetry that rose out of them.
  • Also available throughout March is the opportunity to add the names and regiments of relatives who perished in the Great War to a list being compiled in remembrance.
  • Weather permitting, volunteers from our Community Steering Panel will also be sowing poppy seeds on two small areas of the library grounds sometime in March.

St Agnes Library job club runs every Wednesday between 9:30am-11:30am.  We work in partnership with Job Centre Plus to help support local people find work.  We offer FREE access to computers during this session for online job related activities, as well as basic IT skills guidance to help job seekers apply for jobs online and support those looking for work.
