May the Fourth be with you…

To combat a rather gloomy bank holiday weekend, Hunstanton Library commemorated international Star Wars day with a fun-filled morning of activities celebrating the beloved franchise that transcends generations.
To mark the day, volunteer group Hunstanton Library Friends ran the family-orientated event. Activities on offer included painting stones as Ewoks, decorating your own ‘Wookie Cookie’ and a Star Wars quiz.
Nikki Hastie of the group created a display of her own personal collection of Star Wars memorabilia— including posters dating back to 1977, a vinyl from 1980 and a limited edition Star Wars monopoly game from 1997.
Though this is the first year that they have held a Star Wars event, the group often holds events that benefit their local community and that appeal to a wide range of people; for example, events such as Life Made Easier that helps locals living with disabilities.
