The mobile library van will be at the village hall from 12noon until 12 30pm on the following Thursdays : 18th November, 16th December, 13th January and 10th February.
This is a reduced number of visits compared to pre-covid and on a Thursday rather than Saturday as before, which will make it less accessible for those at work or school. This is a great service which I hope you will be able to use and promote to others.
SUPPORT FOR AFGHANS AND OTHER FAMILIES IN NEED IN PETERBOROUGH
St. Pega’s is supporting the Benefice-wide initiative to help Afghan families (and others) being resettled in this area and especially at Christmas time. There is a box at the back of the church for donations (by 5th December please), next to the Food Bank Box. Suggested items are as follows:
Toiletries – soap, shower gel etc., for any sex and age; hairbrushes, combs, hair bobbles etc., (new please), small hand knitted items – hats, gloves, mittens; knitted cuddly toys (please use safe stuffing and avoid things like wobbly eyes for Health & Safety reasons).
