Heart and Sole!

The heart and sole of the city of Norwich will be featured in a special talk and slide show at Hethersett Library on September 26th

Local historians Frances and Michael Holmes will combine anecdotes, films, photographs and contemporary newspaper reports to tell the story of the Norwich boot and shoe trade. 

The couple are members of the Norwich Heritage Project which has just published a book on the subject. In the years leading up to the Second World War the trade employed 15% of the total city workforce. Places for the talk can be reserved by calling 01603 810188.  

The library will be holding a social media session on September 30th to teach people how to set up Facebook and Twitter accounts, how to upload photographs and other computer related skills. Places are limited so booking is essential. 

On October 7th the library will be holding a charity coffee and cake morning in aid of Age UK Norfolk. The event will run from 10.30 a.m until 12.30 p.m. 

Above County Councillor Judith Virgo presents a certificate to eight year old Ryan Turner from Hethersett and on the right Ms Virgo with borthers James (7) and Charlie (5) Wickham.

Meanwhile a busy summer for young readers culminated in the award of certificates for the 2013 Creepy House reading scheme which encouraged many local youngsters to read throughout the summer holidays. The certificates were handed out to a packed library by Hethersett’s County Councillor Judith Virgo.   

Hethersett will be taking part in Norfolk Libraries’ Banned Book week which runs from September 22nd to 28th. The library will feature a number of books, many of which are now accepted as classics, which were initially banned. Borrowers can even have a surprise by borrowing the books in a plain brown cover without knowing their actual title.
