Wellow Parish Council Fiction Library

The Parish Council is planning to open a Paperback Fiction Library at Wellow Village Hall in the near future to give residents the opportunity to borrow fiction paperbacks locally and at little or no cost.

The Wellow Village Hall Committee have very kindly agreed to let us use part of the Embley Room at the Village Hall, free of charge, for this venture, which is fantastic.

We hope to start the Library towards the end of April once we have enough books to make it viable.

Initially the Library will be open for residents to borrow books on Mondays between 12pm-2pm but if it proves to be really popular, we will extend the opening times and days to suit and possible include books for younger readers.

Each book will cost 20p to borrow with all proceeds going to local village charities.

The Library will be stocked with donated books, all paperback fiction, no hardbacks.

If you have any spare books that you have read and no longer need and are looking to dispose of, please drop them off at the Parish Office Monday to Thursday, 9.00 am to 1.00 pm.  Alternatively, we can arrange to collect.

We will need around 200 – 250 books in order to start the Library with a good stock and then ongoing donations to keep it current.

You will be able to borrow up to four books at a time and return them at your convenience.  The books will be rotated regularly as new ones are donated and will then be taken to local charity shops if still in good condition or recycled.

We are really hoping that the Library proves to be popular and gives residents an opportunity to not only catch up on their reading but also meet up and make new friends.

We are holding a drop-in Community Event so that residents can find out more about how the Wellow Neighbourhood Plan is progressing. Come and see how your survey responses are influencing the plan and give us your thoughts and views on how you think Wellow should develop and progress in the future. This is YOUR Parish and it's important that you have your say!

Do you own land that has a watercourse or drainage ditch on or adjacent to it?

Answer: Yes –You are therefore a ‘riparian landowner’ and you are responsible for maintaining those watercourses.
