Chepstow Library has joined forces with renowned tea company, Twinings to offer an opportunity to discover the wonderful world of tea in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Organised by Macmillan Libraries Cancer Support and Information Service this event - to be held in the library’s reading garden on Thursday 9th May from 4pm to 6pm - will be led by tea specialist Mark Nicholls.
Mark is an ambassador for the 306 year old British tea firm Twinings and will reveal the difference between oolong and Assam as he offers a taste of tea with a distinct botanic theme. Many people who have tried Earl Grey will appreciate the lighter flavour of Lady Grey with its citrus notes or enjoy the special edition Twinings lavender, rose or blossom teas.
Tickets, available from Chepstow Library, are free but a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support would be warmly received.
Chepstow Library’s garden offers a special place to sit and enjoy a good read. The Friends of Chepstow Reading Garden are working with Joanna Kerr of the National Garden Scheme to create a new, shaded, comfortable seating area where visitors can peruse a good book, look at information on cancer or just relax and enjoy the garden space.
Each library in Monmouthshire has areas where people can find a range of information on living with and beyond cancer. There are also regular drop in information sessions and activity groups offering support.
