A "CRIME themed" event to raise funds for Ledbury's library is set to take place next Thursday.

A coffee morning at St Katherine's Hall will help to raise money for audio books and for a project to digitise historic copies of the region’s local papers.

It takes place on Thursday July 31 from 10am to midday.

Crime writer Suzette Hill will be at the event along with craft stalls, book sales, cakes, drinks and a raffle.

Information will also be provided about the opening date and hours for the new library.
