The Reading Room Temporary Closure


In the light of the government’s recent urgent advice to us all to refrain from ‘unnecessary
social contact’ the Reading Room has now closed for social activities until further notice.

The defibrillator in the porch will remain available for emergencies.

Foodbank contributions continue to be welcomed and should be left in the porch.

Be assured that we will re-open the Room as soon as possible.

Meanwhile we thank all our customers, volunteers and users for their help and friendship and send you our very best wishes for the coming months.

A quiet day in the Reading Room

Here you will find company, light refreshments, and local information about events and organisations. Our kiddies’ corner provides games, puzzles and scribbling facilities!

For older children and adults, free WiFi is available, together with access to scanning, printing and laminating facilities (up to A3) – for a small charge. We would be delighted to help you use the equipment available.

Look out for Community Events hosted by the Reading Room.

  • Talks – usually on a Saturday morning – by local people on their special interests.
  • Walks – on Bank Holidays – bring the delights of the local countryside to all ages in a social atmosphere.
  • Seasonal Events – celebrations and refreshments
