Successful Open Day

Many thanks to all the volunteers that made our open day so successful.  It really was a fantastic day with something for everyone. It was so interesting we had coverage in both the Sunderland Echo and on BBC Look North!

Many thanks to Sheila Quigley for cutting the ribbon, opening the library and signing books.

We have a poem of thanks below written by trustee Richard Day, which sums up the day with some videos highlighting some of the excellent talent that was on display that we have on our doorstep here in Whitburn:

 

A great big thank you to you all

We asked, you came, you met our call

For the splendid pies and scones and cakes

That warm hearted floury fingers baked

 

For the brightness of the Acopela group

Sing along, swing along, smiles, join in –

For Bill’s musicians too, the style they did bring

“La Vie en Rose” beautifully sung.

 

To all the artists, poets, young and old

“A” level art with their colours bold

To Bryony and her carrot fair

Children’s whistles and the pair

 

Of young girls who joined the band

Gently whistling, a priceless find!

And to those who worked behind the scenes

And to the ladies who served the tea

 

 

 

A thank you all those to the opening came

Making it a moment to remember

Pity we can’t do it again!

 

The event saw about 210 people come through the door and raised an important £367.95.  Thank you everyone!
