Rothley Community Library

February newsletter

This month’s highlights: Harry Potter night is on Thursday 2nd February from 5-7pm in the library. The Big Book Sale is on Saturday 18th, from 10-1, there’s another Film Talk session, the new Chess Club will be meeting and Eddie the Eagle will be at the Film Club on Friday 17th. You’re very welcome to any of the events at the library. If you’d like to help, let the library know.

Over 140 local people came to the library to say goodbye to Gurdip and Suhki, whose post office contract came to an end. The farewell had an added significance due to the events of the cash machine raid earlier in the week. In addition to the many cards and messages written in a book, Gurdip was presented with some Mexican currency and Suhki with some flowers. Donations came to over £650 as a result of collections in various locations in the village. The presentation was made on behalf of the community by Percy Hartshorn, Chair of the Parish Council. Gurdip, Suhki and their family kindly provided refreshments for all. Gurdip and Suhki are going for a well earned break to Mexico in mid February.

There are twelve new bird feeders in Rothley after the session on 21st January. Birds will no doubt be tweeting their thanks in the cold weather.
