Libraries Week Peace of Cake Thursday 10th October

We invite you to have cake and conversation with library staff and Lewisham residents committed to encouraging integration and making new friends. Please come along (with cake if you are able), and have conversations with people who you would not normally talk to – this is Lewisham, a borough that is proud of its diversity, but there is so much more to be done to bring people together. We especially welcome people new to the UK, so take the opportunity to broaden your horizons and welcome them to Lewisham. It would be great to have teas and cakes from different cultures!

Peace of Cake started as a simple post on Facebook and has been born out of the amazing and positive response of people who want to reach out and promote dialogue for a peaceful future for their children. It is a great opportunity to make new friends who may be different from you in some ways but the same in others!

Lewisham libraries are designated safe havens, places where everyone can feel welcome and safe, regardless of colour, creed, background, age, gender, sexuality, politics, and so on. As well as enjoying cake and good company, you can find out more about what our libraries have to offer, and meet our lovely librarians and library assistants! We are celebrating Libraries Week and the many events our libraries run each week, as well as our digital resources. Come and find out more, and tell us what else you’d like to see in our libraries!

Peace of Cake at Manor House Library SE13 27th July 2019

So excited about meeting many of our Peace of Cake supporters and their families/friends at this Peace of Cake in Lee. Living and sharing for a better world, we hope to have cake and tea with you, coupled with a chance to meet your MP Janet Daby who will be there. There is no peace without justice and no justice without a voice – it is important that the person who represents us in Parliament knows us and we all work together for Peace!27 july
