The 90th anniversary of universal suffrage will be celebrated at a village library next week, as part of a packed summer programme of events.

Congresbury Community Library, in Station Road, will host equalities tea parties on June 29 from 10.30am-12.30pm and 2.30-4.30pm.

All British citizens were given the right to vote nine decades ago, and the occasion will be celebrated by Congresbury Parish Council, which took control of the library from North Somerset Council last summer.

Since, it has co-ordinated a varied programme of classes, lectures and parties.

The library will host craft classes which will show people how to make paper bead jewellery on July 5 and 19 from 10am-12.30pm.

And a children’s puppet show promoting water safety and the RNLI will be performed on July 21 at 
10am.

To book for the craft classes or puppet show, call 01934 426200
