Memorial library all set to open

The Ashford and District Beekeepers Association are holding a reception on Saturday at Ashford Heritage and Community Centre to the opening of the Michael Giles Memorial Library.

Michael Giles was a long-standing Executive member of the Ashford Association who sadly passed away last year.

Michael loved nothing more than sharing his knowledge with others and as a final gesture he bequeathed his substantial library of bee-related books to the Association. It will be permanently housed in the Heritage Room at the Community Centre in Ashford.

The official opening of the Michael Giles Memorial Library takes place at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 9 and includes a reception and a buffet lunch.
