The Biddulph Local People’s Project have produced a Newsletter, their first one in December 2019. The group come together in Biddulph Library to discuss what activities and events they want to see happening and to make improvements in the local area, which is Biddulph East Ward. The Newsletter features some poetry from its recent Writers Project, focuses on a volunteer meeting the CEO and Program Manager of the People’s Health Trust and promotes a competition for young people to design it’s logo.
The Group have made a fantastic start, its competition, poetry and events all contribute towards making the Newsletter interesting, informative, fun and very local. The photograph shows 2 members of the group Margaret Jackson (on the left) and Jan Selby, they were also key members of the Library Friends Group. We are very fortunate to have people like them in our community, they are the best advocates for libraries and the work they do.
