Next of Kin Event at Symington Library

The Next of Kin event at Symington Libray proved very popular on Tuesday. While the library knit and natter group created beautiful poppies using felt and crochet, little fingers were busy exploring the WW1 handling kit from the Next of Kin touring exhibition. The children were fascinated by the keepsakes treasured by families, including letters and postcards sent home, medals sent by the government to next of kin and unique artefacts collected by troops as souvenirs.
