Wendover Community Library is Open

We’re happy to announce that Wendover Community Library (WCL) was declared open on Saturday, 1 December! A quartet of local music students from Sir Henry Floyd School provided some excellent music. Philip Mitchell, Chairman of the Community Library Committee, welcomed a large crowd of library users, local representatives and volunteers who came along to support the event. Margaret Aston, representing Bucks County Council, wished us every success. Mrs Olive Bradburn, (97), who was a volunteer at the original library in the early 1960s, then cut the ribbon and WCL was declared open! Performance poet/musician, James Carter, subsequently gave two enjoyable performances, entertaining all age groups. A smart library sign with our new logo is in place. The logo was created from designs by John Colet students: Luke and Mark Paulley, Leo Thompson and Emma Simpson. WCL now has its own website – www.buckscommunitylibraries.org/wendover – which can be used to access normal library services, to advertise or learn about activities and to link to other related local facilities. We are pleased to welcome our new Library Manager Susan Morton along with her colleagues, Mel Greasby and Sarah Bone. Our newly trained volunteer counter-assistants are already working alongside the staff and are enjoying the experience. We have a significant data-base of volunteers, however, we would be pleased to welcome more volunteers to help our new local venture. (either enquire in the Library or contact wclib12@gmail.com ). Over the next few months we hope to ask for help in developing activities within the library and organising both social and fundraising events. 2013 should be a Happy New Year for WCL.
