Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee
70 FOR 70 – New Members Wanted
We are also starting a Jubilee library campaign to celebrate 70 years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
If you have still not joined your local community library, please think about doing so.
We are aiming to attract 70 new members in this Platinum Jubilee year.
It is FREE! You can join online if you aged over 16.
If you are under 16 you will need to visit the library with a parent or guardian – www.leicestershire.gov.uk/leisure-and-community/libraries/join-the-library
July to September 2022
Summer Reading Challenge 2022 – 2 July – 10 September 2022. We now know that this year’s theme is GADGETEERS.
The Challenge is presented by the Reading Agency in partnership with libraries and the Science Museum Group.
The theme is science and innovation.
The Challenge inspires children to see the science and innovation behind everyday objects, showing that reading and science is for everyone. Last year in 2021, the Challenge still managed to attract over half a million children as the lockdown eased.
Parents should be aware of the dip in reading skills while children are out of school for the long summer holidays and therefore this year’s Challenge is never more important, especially following missed education during COVID-19.
The characters and artwork have been created by Julian Beresford.
More details will follow, keep an eye on the Herald, communications from local primary schools and in the library.
Easter Egg Hunt and Easter Bonnet Competition
The Easter Bonnet competition was judged by County Councillor Peter Bedford who has personally provided prizes for each category; adult, junior and younger children.
Markfield WI hosted a cake stall, tea and coffee was also available and there were some craft activities to get involved in
