Saxilby and Ingleby Parish chairman Peter Odam said: “2012 really has been a golden year for the village, what with the Torch Relay and now another celebration is due with the next chapter of our library’s history. And who better to do the honours?

Coun Odam continued: “Sophie is truly inspirational and that’s what we’d like our new library to be – this long awaited opening is such positive news.”
