Earlier this year, Friends of Church Stretton Library purchased display shelves and photos for the Visitor Information Centre (VIC) to improve the decor. In August we began what was meant to be a 6-week pilot to open the VIC on Mondays and Wednesdays when the library is normally closed.
This was such a resounding success that we continued opening the VIC on Mondays & Wednesdays through October and November. As visitor numbers to the area have dwindled we are taking a break but will begin opening again on Mondays & Wednesdays from February – if the pandemic permits.
We discovered that visitors frequently ask for short circular walks from Church Stretton, so a few of our volunteers are trying out a few routes over the Christmas break hoping to be able to provide visitors leaflets with these walks early next year.
A big thank you too all the volunteers who have helped make this a success and also to Alexis Seaborne who provided training and a manual of instructions for the volunteers.
