Thank You To John Lewis!

We wish to say a huge thank you to our local John Lewis store who have very generously supplied us with a Microsoft Surface Go tablet. This will significantly improve the time and costs of recording the theatre brochures – one of our main revenue streams, and enable us to complete documentation and forms out of the office. We can also use it at events to take photographs and videos.

30th Birthday Tea Party!

On Saturday 13th October, service users and volunteers old and new, along with some carefully selected guests, gathered together at the Oak Tree Centre in Shenley Brook End to celebrate 30 years of the Reader Service.

It was wonderful to share the afternoon with so many friends, including an appearance from the local mayor!


We had a fantastic rendition of a specially written poem from Pauline Shears and live music was provided by Fadin’ Shoes.









As usual thank you to all the wonderful helpers who assisted with the greeting arrivals, serving refreshments and selling raffle tickets and to Martin Lycett for his technical support






Well done to Tracy and a huge thanks to Paula and the committee who worked so hard to pull everything together.  Here’s to another 30 years!!

Scrabble Challenge

Scrabble Challenge winners

Last month, we ran a number of Scrabble Challenge events in the various libraries in our area.  We saw about 50 people over the 3 events and would like to thank the Library Service for their support and everyone who attended.

A special thanks to our own Terry Calvert for all his work on this project.


Congratulations to the under 16 years old winner Serryn Adlington, who made 31 points from her letters, and the adult winner Eve Tigano with 56 points. Both receive shopping vouchers.


We would like to know if there is sufficient interest to run events such as this in the future, so please get in touch and let us know if you would be interested in taking part.
