We hope to run an event in October for National Poetry Day where lovers – readers and writers – of poetry are invited to read a poem which has ‘chimed’ for them from a poet they most value and respect and, side-by-side, a poem of their own inspired by their ‘role model’ poet.
Who knows whether this will be possible in October or whether it will need to be rescheduled for a later date?
But while lockdown continues, Joanna Clark has provided some ideas and suggested reading which will hopefully inspire you to start preparing for this.
We had planned holding our first AGM in early June but have had to postpone it because of coronavirus restrictions. We will hold it as soon as we can.
Charity commission regulations state that all trustees have to stand down at the first AGM but can stand for re-election. All but one of our current trustees have agreed to stand for election at the AGM. We will just have to delay this procedure!
We are always on the lookout for new committee members – anyone and everyone is welcome because we know that everyone brings their own range of skills and experience.
If you want to find out more about who is on the committee and what is involved please look on our trustee page
In our next Winter Talk, Peta of Shropshire Swift Group will talk about these birds that visit our towns during the Summer – their lifecycle and issues they face. She will also briefly look at some of the other birds with which we share our gardens and buildings.
£5 on the door, to include tea and cake.
All funds raised will go to Friends of Church Stretton Library
