Mayor’s News: Rainbow Sleepover at Blackrod library and Council Chamber
The night of May 24th something happened in Blackrod Library that has never happened in a Bolton Library before…

The library hosted a sleepover as a special favour to the Blackrod Rainbows!! It was a wonderful evening and the girls really enjoyed themselves and our staff Ann Brown and Anne Burns really, really enjoyed having them…

They made fairy wish jars, met Tinkerbell and the Mayor of Blackrod who presented all the Rainbows with a special certificate saying they were the first people to ever sleep in her Council Chamber.

Anne Burns read extracts from the BFG and Peter Pan, they had a Treasure Hunt and found naughty fairies hiding in the library, made cute cuddly toys, ate hot dogs for supper and had 3 bedtime stories.

In the morning they had even more stories and wrote down everything everyone had enjoyed about the sleepover.

A truly lovely event.
