2017 Valentine’s Raffle

Val Raffle ad for Essentials

 

Great prizes again this year – £50 to spend on a lovely meal in the Pant yr Ochain or the Golden Lion – perfect for celebrating Valentine’s Day!! A bargain at just a £1 a ticket and you’ll be helping the library along the way as well. Now that we’ve finished the Children’s Library refurbishment (it looks beautiful) we’re saving up to replace the front windows with safe and more energy efficient glass and to make the toilet warmer and baby-changing-friendly. Any money we raise will go towards these goals.
