Many groups from the local community who regularly meet in branch, including Knit & Natter, Sewing Bee, Book Folding, Tea and Tech and the Reading Group were invited to the special event.
The library provides a welcoming space for the groups giving people a chance to meet and socialise with others while enjoying an activity.
Afternoon Tea was a chance to bring all the groups together to thank them for the valuable contribution they all make to the success of the branch as a place for the local community and to recognise their amazing fundraising efforts.
Over the course of 2017, library groups across Knowsley raised £1444.57 for local and national charities, a large part of which was raised from the sale of items produced by the Huyton Library groups.
Everyone who came along said what a wonderful time they had and that they really appreciated the effort the Huyton Library staff put into the event:
“Huge thank you to all the staff at Huyton library for a wonderful afternoon. The Afternoon Tea was lovely, beautifully presented and delicious. All your hard work was greatly appreciated.
“We had a wonderful afternoon at Huyton library, when we had afternoon tea provided by the wonderful staff. They went out of their way to ensure that we had a good time. The food was presented beautifully and a good time was had by all. Thank you.”
