Huyton afternoon tea celebration in library

Groups who meet in Huyton Library have enjoyed an afternoon tea celebration.

Many groups from the local community who regularly meet in branch, including Knit & Natter, Sewing Bee, Book Folding, Tea and Tech and the Reading Group were invited to the special event.

The library provides a welcoming space for the groups giving people a chance to meet and socialise with others while enjoying an activity.

Afternoon tea was a chance to bring all the groups together to thank them for the valuable contribution they all make to the success of the branch as a place for the local community and to recognise their amazing fundraising efforts.

Over the course of 2017, library groups across Knowsley raised £1444.57 for local and national charities, a large part of which was raised from the sale of items produced by the Huyton Library groups.

Everyone who came along said what a wonderful time they had and that they really appreciated the effort the Huyton Library staff put into the event: “Huge thank you to all the staff at Huyton library for a wonderful afternoon. The afternoon tea was lovely, beautifully presented and delicious. All your hard work was greatly appreciated.

Another member of the group said: “We had a wonderful afternoon at Huyton library when we had afternoon tea provided by the wonderful staff. They went out of their way to ensure that we had a good time. The food was presented beautifully and a good time was had by all. Thank you”.
