Researching at Worthing Library – Saturday 19th December 2015 (Report)

Some of the Youth Council members, along with Tim, Phil and a former youth mayor James, took a trip to Worthing Library to learn/use the microfiche machines to search through old Worthing Heralds for any mention of our Pier.  While it was a long and arduous task, that after a while started to hurt our eyes, it was quite successful as we found 28 excerpts to scan and upload to the website, expanding our pier data base even further. Half way through the day we made our way over to the Glyn Owen centre, and after a delicious lunch nicely provided by Shirley, turned the scanned excerpts into articles to upload to the W3PF website later. It was a productive day, as we learned a useful skill for later in life, and also found out many more things about our wondrous pier.
