What’s On at Poulton Library in November 2018
Special Events in November
|Friday 2nd||Songs the Soldiers Sang – Gadabouts|
With the approaching 100th Anniversary commemorating the end of World War One we are lucky to have The Gadabouts, a local singing group from Garstang, to entertain us with songs the soldiers sang at the end of the war. Come along and enjoy an afternoon of music. Refreshments will be available.
|Friday 9th||Joseph 1917|
As the 100th Commemorative Anniversary of the ending of World War One approaches we welcome once again author David Hewitt to talk about his book Joseph 1917. It tells the story of a man from Thornton, who got caught up in the First World War, but takes the form from a different perspective of a soldier. Rather than focusing on the war the story focuses on the man’s family, the community where he comes from and the consequences of a soldier being forced to go to war. Come along for what promises to be an interesting talk and slide show. Refreshments will be available.
|Monday 12th||Discover the 5 ways to wellbeing|
As part of Self Care Week this taster session will provide learners with the opportunity to find out more about The 5 Ways to Wellbeing and to take part in a series of wellbeing activities. They will gain an awareness of the key themes: Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give and recognise how incorporating the 5 Ways into their life could improve their health and wellbeing.
This event is free to all adults over 19, but booking is required.
|Friday 16th||Ferry Tales – Memories of Knott End to Fleetwood Ferry |
We welcome to Poulton Library local author, Angela Norris, to tell us all about her latest book.
Angela, who has also written ‘Dancing to the beat of the tide’, has gathered the memories of travellers who relied on Lancashire’s best loved ferry to get to school or work during the 1940s, 50s and 60s. Come along and hear these entertaining tales. Refreshments will be available.
|Tuesday 20th||Cryptic Crossword Group|
