The dry spring of 2012, following the dry Winter of
2011, has led to serious soil moisture deficits.
As a result, hose pipe bans, will take place in the
South, East and up to Yorkshire, unless there is
prolonged and heavy downfalls soon.

King’s Thursday, 2 Rowney Gardens, Sawbridgeworth, CM21 0AT WHEREVER YOU ARE IN ESSEX

[email protected] We have a fleet of 12 mobile libraries and one of them
brings the service right into your community.
Our mobile libraries really are just like a normal library
except they’re on wheels. Go up the steps and let the
world of Essex Libraries open up for you.
Mobile libraries carry a wide selection for adults and for
children. This includes fiction and non fiction books and
DVDs. They also carry ‘talking books’, large print
books and are wheelchair accessible. Mobile library
staff are always there to help you with finding what you
are looking for.
Why not bring a class on board? You can arrange for
your Primary or Pre-school to visit a mobile library and
find out more about what about what libraries have to
offer them.
It’s easy for you to find out if the mobile library visits
your community. If you have Internet access you can
visit our website and select
the ‘mobile libraries’ option on the left hand side.
You’ll find timetables for all our stops.
Or simply call us on 0845 603 7628 and we’ll be happy
to tell you where and when your nearest stop is and
answer any questions you may have about the mobile
library service.
We’re always trying to make sure that we are sending
mobile libraries to the right places and regularly review
our service.
For queries of this type please contact Darren Smart,
Mobile Library Service Coordinator, on 01376 320 752
We look forward to welcoming you to a mobile Essex
library soon.

Hatfield Heath Gardening Club have started off their new
season with three very interesting and entertaining eve-
nings. Talks on “A Year in the Flower Garden” by Richard
Barnett and “Plants for Winter Interest” by Peter Jackson
of Scotsdales Garden Centre in Great Shelford were com-
plemented by a meeting dedicated to one of the gardening
“greats”. Bryan Hewitt from Myddelton House Gardens
gave a presentation on the life of Edward Augustus Bowles.

E. A. Bowles was born in Myddelton House near Enfield

in 1865. Said to be a sickly child (he died one week short

of his eighty-ninth birthday!) he was educated at home by

the local vicar and was drawn to study for the priesthood

in Cambridge. Family tragedies forced him to abandon

these studies and return home to look after his parents.

Here he devoted himself to helping his local church in

Hallingbury Hall Equestrian Centre many ways, one of which was to run a night school for
local boys. He also created Myddelton House Gardens
