The Friends were established in 2005, as a charitable association whose purpose is to
support and assist the Priaulx Library and its work.

Our thanks to John David for this picture of L’Islet sometime after 1912, and we have no idea why the children and what we think is a policeman, appear to be social distancing.

Olliver was a grocer between 1911 and 15 – according to Kelly’s Directory of those years – and was latterly a hair salon which was demolished at the end of last year and is now being rebuilt. The chapel is now Sula Art Gallery and has gained the gap in the wall.
