Drop In Support for Young People and Parents Following Manchester Arena Bombing

Following last Monday’s terrorist attack young people from right across the city have been emotionally affected by the tragic events that took place. Many of our local young people went the concert on Monday night and many others had friends who attended.

As next week is half term drop in sessions have been arranged for young people and their parents to attend to provide emotional and wellbeing support to those young people who need it. A team of trained and experienced professionals will be available onsite at the venues and times below in order to provide information and advice to students and parents, to promote the emotional health and wellbeing of children, during this particularly difficult period should they need it.

Since March of this year, we have seen the Library membership grow by 111 new members, and we are proud to say that the Library has been visited by 814 Adults and 432 Children in the same period.  The Library is staffed by Volunteers, members of our Community who freely donate their time and skills to keeping the Library “ship shape” ; without them it would not be possible to be able to offer the high standard of service and support that we do.  It is largely through their support that from MONDAY  12TH SEPTEMBER our Library Opening Hours will be extended

Monday – Friday Morning 9.30a.m.  to 12.30p.m.

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday Afternoon 1p.m. to 4p.m. 

Tuesday afternoon has  been extended from 1p.m. to 8p.m.

Saturday mornings 9.30a.m. to 12p.m.
