An Inspiring Story of Self Help and Empowerment

Wednesday 21 March 2018, 2.30pm

Popular local author Lesley Sehli will be joining us at Forehill Library to talk about her book ‘He said die, I say no!’. Lesley was the first British woman to hold a uniquely privileged position behind the veil in Saudi Arabia and her work reveals an underworld of prostitution, pain and imprisonment and in her capacity, she helps those she can. Married into an elite, powerful family, where money and riches were no object and then left destitute, fighting for survival against a deadly disease; her experience proves that things that can be presumed might hold you back will actually push you forward, and the truth can set you free!

The Story Behind Forehill Library Jigsaw

October 9, 2017

This jigsaw was kindly donated by a member of Forehill library Knit and Natter group. On completion by a few of the ladies attending the weekly group, a regular user of the library offered to frame the finished jigsaw.  So true to his word the jigsaw was duly collected from the library and taken to his home to be framed.  After careful transportation of the jigsaw and just as it was about to be put on the frame, the jigsaw slipped off the portapuzzle mat and landed on the floor in several hundreds of pieces!   Unfortunately, the framer was going on a cruise in a few days time and was now under added pressure to frame the “piece”.

However all came good in the end and this is the finished article, and we are happy to say that the “framer” and his wife thoroughly enjoyed their cruise – it was total relaxation after the few stressful days leading up to it completing our 1000 piece jigsaw!

Very fitting and appropriate we feel for our group and very much admired and appreciated by all.

If you like to knit and have a bit of a natter, then why not join us? The group gets together at Forehill Library every Thursday from 2pm – 4pm.

You don’t have to go down to the deep dark wood to meet the Gruffalo…just come down to Forehill Library! He loves cuddles and sharing a story – so it’s lucky he’s had lots of little visitors over the school holidays to keep him company.

We’ve been very busy at the library with superhero crafts, LEGO sessions and the very talented sewing group made some amazing tie-dye t-shirts and pom-poms!

Join us for more craft fun tomorrow at Forehill from 2.15pm – 3.15pm.
