Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

VIS­I­TORS to a com­mu­nity li­brary will have brand new car­pet un­der their feet thanks to a grant.

The Buck­ing­hamshire Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion do­nated funds for a new blue car­pet at Chal­font St Peter Com­mu­nity Li­brary in High Street. The li­brary has do­nated its old car­pets to the parish coun­cil which will use them to pre­vent weed growth by cov­er­ing un­used al­lot­ments.

Com­mu­nity Li­brary chair­man Steve Poole said: “We’re pleased to have been able to con­tinue our pro­gramme of im­prove­ments to our com­mu­nity li­brary and we are very grate­ful to the Buck­ing­hamshire Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion.

“We chose a lo­cal company, First Floor Car­pets, to pro­vide and in­stall the new car­pets and we thank them for the support they have given to us through­out this project, par­tic­u­larly by car­ry­ing out the work over a week­end to avoid dis­rupt­ing our open­ing hours.

“This is a great ex­am­ple of business and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions work­ing to­gether and shows why Chal­font St Peter is such a thriv­ing com­mu­nity.”
