Today’s jigsaw puzzles can come in boxes with thousands of pieces and even the alphabet printed on the back giving clues to where the piece belongs. So next time you happen to pop in the Tea Gardens Library, grab a piece or two and add your touch and expertise. The librarians at Tea Gardens are all about community. Chris Shelly took her love of books to the Spring Fair at Medowie at the weekend to read to the youngsters, in a series of story time sessions. While the children got to rest and listen to some wonderful tales, mums and dads were given the chance to relax and enjoy a great day out, a ‘Fairy Tale’ come true.
