Reopening soon

We are working towards reopening the bookshop very soon, once all of the new measures in place to keep everyone safe. Please keep a check on this webpage or follow our shop social media channels, and we’ll let you know as soon as we have a firm date.

It will be wonderful to open our doors again soon! In the meantime, thank you for your patience.

If you have a donation to make, please hold onto it for a little longer - we will be grateful for it once we’re open again. Please do not leave donations outside the shop.
