IT’S not often I congratulate St Helens Council but in this case I must do so.

It is noted from page 5 of the Star under the headline “Arts Project is Named Best in the UK”.

This refers to St Helens Arts & Libraries Programme. 

It is wonderful for my wife and I to walk into our local library at Clinkham Wood.

The staff are very helpful mainly to my wife who reads novels whilst I prefer reading history/military history.

So, many thanks to all the staff working for St Helens Arts & Libraries. Well done.
