At this time of year, many of Suffolk’s communities come together by putting on Christmas fayres, bazaars and markets to usher in and celebrate the festive season. Last week, Dr Dan showed his support for Westbourne Library when he opened the annual Christmas fayre of the Friends of Westbourne Library and Broomhill Trust. A variety of Christmas cards, home-made cakes and children’s craft stalls were available, with the proceeds raised going towards the upkeep of the library.
Dan was delighted to hear that the library was recently awarded Grade II listed status after extensive refurbishment work was recently undertaken to restore Westbourne library to its original 1948 appearance. Dan is a great supporter of Westbourne Library and would like to commend Gareth Jones and Mark Ling for all of their hard work in taking the library forward.
Without the hard work and planning that is put in by Gareth and Mark and the local volunteers, the Christmas fayre would not be able to take place, and Dan would like to extend his warmest thanks to all those residents who have generously given up their time to make the all the Christmas bazaars and fayres across Suffolk so successful again this year.
