A Royal Makeover

Local children have the opportunity to give Lakenheath Library a Diamond Jubilee makeover in the coming weeks as the library’s regular Sunday Arts & Crafts sessions take on a royal theme in the lead up to the Queen’s 60th Anniversary celebration.

On Sunday 20th, 27th May and 3rd June attendees will be tasked with designing regally appropriate posters, flags and bunting to decorate the library in time for the Bank Holiday weekend. What’s more, admission to these three special sessions is completely free of charge – just turn up on the day ready to get creative!

This is the first major event since F.O.L.K.’s inception and the group really hopes the sessions are a huge success and go some way to helping increase footfall through the library’s door. All materials for these sessions have been generously donated by the Lakenheath Jubilee Committee, with particular thanks to ‘Friend’ Sheila Smith.

A New Date for your Diary

Firstly, apologies for the length of time it has taken to finalise a new date, but I can today reveal that the postponed April F.O.L.K. meeting will now take place on Monday 28th May at 7:00pm at Lakenheath Library.

Special guests Helen Haynes and Charlotte Clark will still be in attendance and Helen promises that the IPS has now received some clear guidence on what kind of organisation our community group will need to be constituted as and what levels of responsibility we can choose from. Helen notes that this “feels like a step in the right direction” – which can only be good news!

We will also be using the meeting to volunteer for, and vote on, individual comittee roles and responsibilites, so please come on the 28th with plenty of ideas for what you can bring to the group as we look to the future. This meeting is open to all who have an interest in keeping Lakenheath Library thriving; we look forward to seeing you there!
