Have we not the knowledge that can feed each child,
shelter every family, and nations reconcile?
Can we not find reasons to reach out and share –
all because we care

The 11th Annual Martinborough Mid-Winter Monster Book Fair is nearly here!

Dates: Friday, Saturday and Sunday  14th, 15th and 16th June at the Waihenga Centre Martinborough Town Hall

This year’s  Fair will get off to a splendid start on the Friday evening at 7pm with our 

Guest Speaker – the wonderful much-loved Children’s storyteller and inspirational writer Joy Cowley. For $20 you can enjoy her talk, a supper and the opportunity to have the first choice of the books.  

There will be free entry to the Fair from 10am to 4pm on the Saturday, and 10am to 2pm on Sunday.

It’s not too late to sort out books to donate  – the First Church hall on Weld Street will be open on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings to receive books of all kinds, also jigsaws and DVDs. Books may also be left at the Library, Pain & Kershaw Ltd or the Pirinoa Store. For help and information contact Pam Colenso 306 9503 Carol Hawkins 306 9112

This is now an established and popular Martinborough event which can be viewed as a very worthy recycling of recreational, inspirational and educational material.

        Whatever the weather  –    See you there!
