Books for Sale

Despite the rise of digital reading devices, the sale of proper books continues to be buoyant. If you are a book lover you will no doubt have shelves and alcoves full of these lovely objects. But every now and then there comes a time when no matter how precious they may seem, you simply have to get rid of some.

This year at the Christmas Market the Community Centre will be running a second-hand book stall so are looking to collect a stock of books. If you would like to take any unwanted reading material down to the Community Centre and leave them in the foyer, the Committee will be delighted to receive them. The books will sell better if they are in good condition. Any books left over will be recycled, either for later sale at future events, or through the second-hand book trade.

This year the Community Centre has decided NOT to offer pancakes as the enterprise was very labour intensive. However, there will be a game of chance on offer for all the family to partake in with a chance to win cash prizes. As usual, the devilish Quiz set by Jane will also be available — something to keep you occupied in the post-Christmas lull!

See you all in the High Street from 5.00 pm on Saturday Dec 2nd — (after the Panto of course)
