"Inspiration for Murder - sort of!"

"I am writing to thank you for giving your time to Wantage library on Saturday. The response from the staff who worked on the day has been full of praise for you; the visitors who attended have given us fantastic feedback and others who were in the library apparently made a point of staying longer and listening in!"
