Used to sit out side the library for lunch from Eastwood boys school some 42 years ago. Maybe I should have gone in the library and been more educated.

I took my granddaughter and was amazed at our local history in this museum. It is well planned in lay out and has some lovely local items on show, such as art work and sculptures. The shop has lovely items for children to buy.
