In two weeks’ time, on Sunday 3rd September, we are lucky to have been allocated tickets to walk over the new bridge over the Forth, The Queensferry Crossing near Edinburgh, Scotland. It will be a motorway linking Edinburgh with Fife and the north, leaving the old road bridge initially to be repaired and then to be used for buses and taxis I believe.
I would like to make this a more meaningful experience for my community by raising much needed funds for our new library which will open officially on the same day, Sunday 3rd September.
I realise than many of you will not visit or benefit from our library, (although you would be more than welcome to pop by and say hello) but if you believe that reading should be encouraged from a very early age and that libraries are precious for our leisure, for education and as a focal point for community life then we’d really appreciate a donation of as little as £3 or $3 or much more if you are feeling generous. I am aiming for £200 and have a long way to go.
Follow this link to our Just Giving Page and the contribution will go directly into our Kinghorn Library bank account.
On Saturday I took these pictures at the Queensferry Regatta when some very brave men and women competed in their skiffs. It is an excellent spot to view all of the bridges in their glory.
