Celebrating 40 Years

Hethersett Library will be turning the clock back to the 1970s to help celebrate its 40th anniversary.

The library was opened in June 1972 and to mark its ruby anniversary will be holding a special crafts and activities day on June 9th which will include displays and music from the Seventies.

The library has a host of other events lined-up before June. It is looking to start a general handicraft and craft group to run monthly:

“We want this to be an informal group where people can come along and enjoy a social occasion and also have the chance to learn a new skill or pass on existing skills to others,” said Library Manager Jennie Hoult. The first meeting will be on May 14th at 2 p.m.

On May 24th the library will have a return visit from Norwich historians Frances and Michael Holmes who will give an illustrated talk on The Yards of Norwich, covering the buildings and the lives of the people who lived there. They previously spoke about pubs and breweries of the city. Admission is free and the presentation starts at 7 p.m. 

To celebrate Jubilee weekend the library is holding an activity morning on June 2nd for children aged five to eight from 10.30 a.m until midday. It is also collecting memories and photographs from the Queen’s Coronation Day and has appealed for help from local residents. 

“We would like to hear from former or current residents of the village about what they were doing at the time. We want to hear stories from the time and would love Hethersett people to record their memories by whatever means they are able. 

“The success of this project depends on people coming forward with their memories. If we have a good response and plenty of material we can create something worth keeping. If this does turn into something worthwhile we will need some practical help,” Mrs Hoult said.  

Any offers of help and information on the coming events is available by calling 01603 810188.
