The town council reached out to local authors to create a presentation of their books inside the noticeboards after many were left blank due to the lack of events during the coronavirus pandemic.

To draw attention, the noticeboards also have solar slow flashing lights on the inside to make the darker evenings a little brighter.

Authors included in the project are Vicki FitzGerald who has published crime thriller, Briguella, set in Weston, and Samantha Ball’s book about the Playhouse Theatre, Marie Glover who has written a book called Grow Your Own Gardening Business.

Marie has had a keen interest in nature since childhood and loves being outside and seeing nature in all its forms.
