Look on our Facebook page for details of our November
Saturday Workshop. We will also e-mail details to all our regulars.
Our agreement with the Vale Council says that we have to
close for staff training for a number of days each year. We have decided to
close all our projects on Friday November 9th for one day. All staff will be
undertaking their first aid training. We apologise for the inconvenience.
We are now able to accept old decimal coins, stamps, dollars
and Euros as well as old printer cartridges, mobile phones and old pound coins.
We would also be very grateful for charity bags as we use a lot of them for
month Review feedback forms.
We appreciate all feedback forms from the reviews. All
returned will be put in a draw for a voucher. Please let us know if you have
not yet received your review.
Our Christmas Raffle tickets are now ready and we hope
again that you can help us sell them to beat our target of £1,000. We would ask
all our members to take 10 books in the first place with more available if
wanted. There will be a prize for the person who sells most tickets. The first
prize in the draw is £100 and there are hopefully up to 50 more prizes
available (donations of prizes are always welcome). The draw will be held at
the end of the Christmas Party which will be on Friday December 14th.

Well done to Angharad and the team for organising a
hugely successful Coffee morning recently in the library in Llantwit.
A massive £700 was raised which will be used to help fund
the work being done at the centre. We were also very pleased to welcome the Mayor
of Llantwit, Councillor David Ellis and fellow councillors who were briefed on
the work being done.
For All Lottery Funding
Our application to the Big Lottery Fund has been
successful and we have been awarded just over £8,000 for the Llantwit Project.
The money will be used to further improve the service we provide in the town
and will eventually lead to the project going full time.
Just a brief reminder that we close at 3.30 and final
pick up time is 3.45. Please let us know if there are any earlier pick-ups
We are happy to announce that Iain Forsyth was recently
elected as our new Chair of Trustees to replace Mike Shanahan who stood down
after 7 years. Jen Morgan was re-elected as vice Chair, Jane Musson as
secretary and Keith Williams as treasurer. We currently have a vacancy on the
board. If you are interested please contact Steve or Iain for further details.
As well as the recent donation of £2,000 from Tesco
stores in the Vale, we have recently been successful in our application to the
Co-op Community Fund. More details will be available in the next newsletter and
