Mince Pie Morning
For various reasons, we are no longer able to run a Christmas Fayre at the end of November. But we still want to provide an opportunity to get together, enjoy seasonal cakes and goodies, have a chat and a bit of fun.
So, just days before Christmas, we're holding a Mince Pie Morning.
Do come along to Cobbett Road Library from 1030 to 1230 on Saturday December 21 - there will be a raffle, a quiz, a bring-and-buy stall, refreshments and, of course, the full resources of the Library to enjoy.

Our gardeners were successful in applying for a Community Chest grant from the City Council. The funds have been used to improve the beds around the Library, to turn the small enclosed area at the back of the building into a pleasant seating area and to provide additional planting near the statue. Plants have been chosen, in part, to cope with the heavily-polluted air at this busy road junction, and should make a contribution to absorbing that pollution.
The free-standing courtyard walls were pressure-washed, and received a coat of masonry paint. The bricks are the London Rustic type with a wavy pattern, used in many Southampton buildings. Their surface detail means they used up far more paint than plain ones would have done!
Planters for the courtyard were bought from the Southampton Wood Recycling Project, and most of the plants came from Mayfield Nurseries.
