FSML have been working with Tracy Edwards-Brown from the council’s Neighbourhood Partnership team to improve the outside of the library. We met in the spring to discuss ideas and suggestions for improving the tired appearance of the library. Tracy arranged for the community pay back team to paint the metal railings and steps in the summer of 2016.
The black paint for the railings was kindly donated by Avonmouth Paint Supplies. The specialist non-slip white paint for the steps was purchased by FSML, along with brushes etc from the donations received at our monthly community coffee mornings; which take place on the third Saturday of each month in the library.
Tracy also organised for 2 lovely flower tubs to be installed by the council on the railings in July. In addition Library Services replaced the temporary banner with a new permanent sign all adding to the improvements to the outside of the library.
