An exhibition of writing on the topic of Refugee Week at Ellesmere Library has been so successful that its run has been extended.

Members of the Words 'n' Pics Open Writers (WOW) in Oswestry and the Chirk Writers' Circle have joined forces to showcase their work in conjunction with the ongoing Save the Children centenary celebrations in the town.

Jan Hedger, from WOW, said she was asked to get involved by Len Graham after her work with the Wilfred Owen Festival held in Oswestry last year.

Len is part of the committee working together to create a lasting memorial to Save the Children founder, Ellesmere-born Eglantyne Jebb.

was really pleased with the response.

She continued: "Producing this exhibition has been moving, but it has also been a privilege to put it together not only for the writers but for all the refugees in the world, past and present.

"This is a homage to them in the only way we can."

The exhibition had been due to end on Saturday but due to the response it will continue for another three or four weeks.

Those wishing to view it should contact the library on Trimpley Street in advance to check the opening times by calling 01743 258555.
