Here’s a great chance for a bit of a chinwag, a brew and even a biscuit for anyone who can make it to Brownhills Library, this and every Tuesday morning from 10am until 12 noon, where the new Place of Welcome initiative is running.
This is a great chance for people to meet in a relaxed, pleasant and friendly environment to chat, have a laugh or two and just generally relax and meet others. Like Aldridge Men’s Shed, I really like the idea of a place for adults to just hang out for a bit and shoot the breeze – there’s not enough of that in the busy world we live in.
Assistant Area Librarian Kim Bailey dropped me the following message about the Place of Welcome project:
Please would you mind mentioning this to any likely person as you go out and about?
It is a national scheme whereby people can drop into a Place of Welcome (unconditionally) for a free drink / biscuit and a chat.
It starts Tuesday 25th October 10-12 noon and then every week at Brownhills Library, in our new coffee lounge area.
Also would you put this on your Facebook, Twitter and website please? We’d be most grateful.
This is really helpful for those community members who are at times isolated and lonely.
Thank you so much.
Assistant Area Librarian
I wish Kim and all involved the very best with this – it’s a fine thing indeed. Why not get down and check it out?
