A TEA party was held at Bidford Community Library to celebrate the volunteers who have made it possible to keep the service open for the village.

The directors of the library organized the event to thank the volunteers who have manned the service on a daily basis since it was taken on by the community in April 2012.

And the celebrations continued as local supermarket, Budgens, presented the library with a cheque for £476.32 raised by shoppers as part of a token scheme in the store.
