Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

Reading Friends

‘Befriending’ service delivered by Zoom and over the telephone by the Library Service.

Reading Friends is a new idea developed by the Reading Agency, and is a library based campaign whereby anyone can chat, have conversations and meet new people .

These conversations help to promote wellbeing through the proven power of reading and are started by looking at some of the ideas or themes in the things that all of us read.

It’s a chance to connect together with a good book, poem or newspaper article, and you don’t have to read anything yourself, you can just join us to chat to someone new and have a laugh.
