After attending all 25 previous events, librarian Isobel Allen is delighted to be opening this year’s Mayfield and Easthouses Gala Day.

Mayfield Library manager Isobel (58), better known locally as Isi, was chosen by the gala day committee to officially open the event at Mayfield Park on Saturday, June 6.

She said: “At first, when I was told, I was quite shocked and surprised by it. I have had time for it to sink in now and I’m very proud. I have had hundreds of congratulation messages.

“My family are over the moon, they are so proud.

“I’ve been going every year since it began. When we can, we take the library van to promote our library. And we try to do face painting and things like that every year too.”

Isi believes her work at the library is why she was chosen.
