The Friends of South Warrington in Stockton Heath Library (SWISH) held a stall at the Stockton Heath Festival for the second year – this year together with Stockton Heath Library who were promoting the Reading Challenge and the many services and activities that they provide.
Our Festival presence gave an excellent opportunity to inform people about the SWISH Library Friends, its events and activities . . . .
. . . . to encourage people to become members
. . . . to explain the redevelopment taking place in the library over the Summer . . . .
. . . . and, of course, to raise funds through sale of second hand books.
The weather was perfect all weekend and Sunday was the busiest day. Although the Friends’ stall was not on the main thoroughfare, our volunteers managed to draw people in
. . . . and our new banner certainly helped.
