Stockton Heath Library Re-opens
Stockton Heath Library reopened on Monday 2nd September following a 12-week, £195,000, redevelopment that includes dementia-friendly design throughout and more flexible activity and events spaces. Other improvements made during the redevelopment, aim to transform the library into a more fit for purpose facility for the South Warrington community.
Film Club - Friday September 27th
Stan & Ollie
Gentle, sweet story of two of cinema’s most legendary comics is a small delight, a warm hug of a movie with superb performances and big laughs.
Contact Lynn to reserve your seat for any of the films. Tel: 07870 950769
On Saturday, 5 October from 11 am until 3 pm Warrington Museum and Library will be turning into a Fun Palace. They are looking for local people and groups to take part by sharing their skills and passions; whether it’s crafts, arts, science, tech, digital, heritage or sports.
Board Games Nights in 2019
Board gaming nights are held on the third Thursday of every month. A variety of games will be on offer from simple to complex, short to long, player vs player or ones where you work together as a team. All abilities and ages from 16 years and up are welcome.
Stockton Heath Festival
SWISH held a stall at the Stockton Heath Festival together with the Library who were promoting the Reading Challenge. Our presence gave an excellent opportunity to inform people about the activities of SWISH, to encourage new members, to explain the redevelopment taking place in the library and, of course, to raise funds through sale of second hand books.
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.
