May 2019 Newsletter
2018 was an amazing year for the Friends, with so many successes it is hard to list them all. From the popular talks by Bill Cooke to Stockton Heath Festival, to a wonderful Wine Tasting evening. The film nights go from strength to strength and in the autumn we introduced a new monthly Board Games Night.
Annual General Meeting 2019
Our Second Annual General Meeting will take place at 7.00 on Thursday 13th June. Work on the redevelopment of the library may have started by then, so we have arranged an alternative nearby venue, at the Pavilion in Alexandra Park , next to the bowling greens.
Film Club - Friday September 27th
Stan & Ollie
