Jane Austen and Southampton
Our first Friday evening talk of 2018 was on March 9. Local historian Dr Cheryl Butler spoke about Jane Austen and Southampton. More than two dozen people heard about this famous author's connections with our city (then a town, of course!)
You can download the A4 poster, and a "2-up" pair of A5 flyers.
Our gardeners have been successful in applying for a Community Chest grant from the City Council. The funds will be 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 will be chosen, in part, to cope with the heavily-polluted air at this busy road junction, and should make a contribution to absorbing that pollution.
