Detailed dates for our groups and events can be found on the Calendar page.

To engage in the community we run regular groups including our child’s reading group Wriggly Readers, our Digital Drop-In for help with technology, Busy Hands and Minds for crafts, games and social and our new Board Game Group. You do not need to book for these groups.

In addition to our regular groups we have events, including crafts such as wreath making, family history talks and more. These will be announced on our website and on fliers around the library. These usually incur a small fee to cover costs. To book for an announced event, ask our librarians.

Wriggly Readers

Every Tuesday, 9:15am – 10:30am

This group started at the library in June 2022 and is aimed at pre-school children and their parents or carers to enjoy stories and book based activities in the library. The group intends to cater for all ages with stories, rhymes and singing for the youngest and additional craft activities for the older children. As this is a new group the development of it will be guided by those who attend.

Busy Hands and Minds

Every 1st and 3rd Friday, 2pm – 4pm

This group is a combined group for those people wishing to meet up on a regular basis to either learn or develop craft skills or to simply come along for a chat or play games. Come along with your own craft items or come along and find out what projects the group are working on. Some materials can be provided and everyone is keen to help new members learn new skills. If you knit, crochet, sew, come along to make new friends and get to know other like-minded people. If you want to join us for a chat or play a game with new or old friends please come along. A small charge is made for the refreshments provided.

Digital Drop-in

Every Wednesday, 10:30am – 12:30pm

This group was formally called Tea and Tech. As technology advances at a rapid pace many people find keeping up to speed with changes challenging. The Digital Drop-in sessions offers members of the community a chance to bring along their own devices e.g. ipad, tablet, laptop, mobile phone etc and learn how to use them effectively in a relaxed and friendly environment. One to one support is available for specific problems or come along regularly to use your devices to practice something new. If you want to add the NHS Covid Passport or know how to download new Apps onto your phone or get to grips with using the camera on your phone/ipad/tablet then come and get more out of your device to make life a little easier. 

If you have a specific problem you can book in and give them a description of the problem so that the Digital Drop-In team can do any research or bring any equipment they may need to solve your problem. Book in with a librarian, call the library or send an email to

Board Games Group

Every Tuesday, 11am – 1pm

This group is new for 2023. We play Scrabble, cards, dominoes and are willing to try other games. Come and join us to have fun, make friends and exercise your mind! 

There is a £1 charge for a drink and biscuits.
