I was pleased to see that Braintree Library is still thriving and going from strength to strength in these austere times and that everyone had a jolly time at the civic reception / celebration party.

I am sure the holder of the post of the last library manager at the old library and the first at the new one, and who was involved in the planning of the new library, would have liked to have been present.

Whilst no longer residing in the county, I am sure she could have been contacted, but she is far too nice and diplomatic to say anything.

Yours with tongue in cheek,
