Mon 14 April 

Annual General Meeting.  Our programmed speaker, Susanna Barnes, has unfortunately had to drop out for health reasons, but we have been promised another speaker from Lambeth Libraries and look forward to hearing more about plans for the Durning.  After that we shall hold our AGM and we hope to see you there.  Don’t forget to bring your £3.00 annual subscription!


Events are normally held on the third Monday evening in the month (but it’s the second Monday in April as Easter gets in the way)

6.45 for 7.15pm at the Durning Library

Light refreshments.  Everyone welcome.

No admission charge, but a £2 donation towards costs is invited.



As announced at the January meeting, Cathy Preece has kindly offered to sell unwanted books, CDs, DVDs, Blue Rays, Amazon games and small electronics (no full-size computers, please!) to raise money for the Library via the Friends.  Anything that she cannot sell on-line she will take to local charity shops or arrange for eco-friendly       disposal.  Together with the Kennington Companions she has already raised a         considerable sum for the Haemochromatosis Society, so let’s see if we can’t beat that    for the Durning!

There is a large blue bin in the library to collect your donations or you can deliver to Cathy direct.  Please contact her on if you wish to do that or if you have any questions.


Seniors’ Events

These have now resumed, and the first meeting will be on Wednesday, 19 March, from 2.00 – 3.45 pm.  See Newsletter for further dates or ask in the Library for this year’s calendar.

Digital Bazaar®

The Digital Bazaar® sessions have been suspended for the time being through lack of support from local people willing to help with informal practical training and advice to other local people.  If you would like to volunteer as a trainer for a couple of hours a month (or even less), you can find out more about the Digital Bazaar® on:  or contact Christina Burnett, who created The Digital Bazaar®, on .
