Flock of Words - Part One held at Spalding Library

During May and June Carole Miles and myself aka The Eloquent Fold have been engaging the lovely people of Spalding and encouraging them to share stories of journeys made to and from Lincolnshire.

Using creativity we have Transported people to places and destinations from the memories that connect them to Lincolnshire.

We have heard stories of Prisoners of War; how Mum met Dad over a supermarket trolley and all about how people have found themselves living in places like, Spalding, Crowland and Long Sutton.

Having welcomed returners from our engagement last year was a joy, and seeing those people yet again enjoy our company and the creativity we had to offer put the icing on our cake which we served with tea served in china cups.
Both Carole and myself have spoken to many and have taken heaps of photographs to document our journey into Lincolnshire which will inspire our own art that we will install in each library at the end of August.

And so we leave behind Spalding Library and move onto our next destination which is Crowland library.  I love the abbey and adore the banter that can be experienced when listening to the lovely ladies of the knitting group who spoke of Jackdaws, a local term for those born in the village.
