FoPL Ceilidh and Library Refurbishment

A time to dance

With a commitment from City and County of Swansea to begin maintenance work at Pennard Library, we think we “might” have something to make a song and dance about!

Shwmae pawb,

Library Refurbishment
The City and County of Swansea (CCoS) buildings department is set to replace the cladding and windows at Pennard Library, with support from FoPL.

FoPL Ceilidh
Councillor Lynda James has organised a Ceilidh at Pennard Parish Hall. There will be recorded music with caller, Keith Lascelles, on Saturday 24th March from 7.30 pm. 

Tickets  are £5 each, bring your own drinks and nibbles. To purchase tickets, contact Lynda at any time on: 07789 816 374.

We need to sell 30 tickets to make it a viable event. Numbers will be restricted so that the hall does not become overcrowded and to ensure that there is sufficient room for dancing comfortably. Lynda hopes that this can become a regular event.

Any surplus receipts will go to Friends of Pennard Library (FoPL).

Wrth werthfawrogi’ch cefnogaeth,

The FoPL Committee

Pennard Library Safe
Just a reminder that the library is safe. No library in Swansea is currently under threat. With the monies raised from our charity shop, we will liaise with the Local Authority re. how we can make the building fit for purpose.
Fundraising Continues
Even though the shop has closed, Karen Penny will continue to take more valuable items to the auctions, so please call her if you have something to donate: 01792 230159

We thank Karen and her team of shop volunteers for raising an amazing £40,000 in the last 19 months – and we wish her well on her Altzheimer’s Society charity walk from John O’ Groats to Land’s End. To support Karen and make a donation, please click here.
