David Williams, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Crewe and Nantwich, is supporting ‘World Book Day’ on 4th March by donating books and attending events at local community centres in Crewe and Nantwich.

‘World Book Day’ is being celebrated in Crewe and Nantwich with events at a number of local Community Centres. World Book Day is the biggest annual celebration of books and reading in the UK and Ireland and local Councillor Roy Cartlidge is helping to organise events at a number of centres in the West End of Crewe.

Roy Cartlidge said, “On Thursday 4th March from 8 o’clock in the morning until 8 o’clock in the evening, you can pop in at Beechmere Extra Care Village, Marshfield Community Centre, Webby’s Community Centre or St Barnabas Church Hall for a quick read or to listen to a story.”

David Williams said, “I am supporting ‘World Book Day’ locally by donating books that will be passed on to the Community Centres. I believe that books provide a gateway into the imagination, whether it is a story for youngsters, a biography of someone, an adventure novel of derring-do, or a factual reference book. Books are a source of wonderment and amazement and they inspire us to great things. Our own imagination can provide much better pictures than the television of movies.

He added, “If you have any books that you have read and no longer require, please bring them along to one of the centres on the day, or pass them on to either myself or Roy, so that they may be enjoyed by others. Do please try to pop in at one or more of the centres and see what’s going on.”
