There will be feedback on your images and the opportunity to exhibit your photographs in the library.
Booking is necessary and you should bring your digital camera.

Advocacy in the library for over 60s in the West End
2.00 - 4.00pm on Mondays, once a month
Advocacy Plus provide free, confidential and independent advocacy to support older people in Westminster. The advocate will:
- Listen to your views
- Inform you of your options
- Represent your wishes and speak on your behalf
They can assist in a wide range of areas – accessing social care, housing, health, homecare and complaints. If you are over 60, live in Westminster’s West End Ward and have a problem call into the library to speak to an advocate who will discuss your options.
Regular children's events run during term-time only, unless otherwise stated.
