In the current lockdown, we recognise that people are feeling confused about restrictions and wondering what winter will bring.
To lift spirits and spread some positivity, We have decided to have a Winter wishes tree in our library garden. Snowflake templates are available at the library on a Wednesday, 1pm-3pm to write your positive thoughts and hopes on.
These can be decorated however you like and will be laminated and hung on the beech tree for everyone to read and will stay until the end of January.
