Clevedon Community Bookshop launch their Community Grant Scheme

Press Release

Clevedon Community Bookshop Co-operative is launching a new community grant scheme to recognise the Community that has supported the store over the last ten years.

Members at our Annual General Meeting agreed that we would donate up to £15,000 from our profits to support good causes in our local area. Any community group operating in BS21 postal area can apply for a grant up to a maximum £500.

Michael Harriott - Chair of the Bookshop said “We are delighted to be able to put something back into our community. Our Bookshop has been trading for ten years and throughout this time it has been supported by volunteers running our store and the community by donating secondhand books for us to sell. Now it's our turn to say thank you by launching our Community Grant Scheme.

If you know of any community group that is based in the BS21 postcode, and has a idea for a project up to £500 please ask them to complete an application form available from our website www.clevedondcommunitybookshop.co-op or pop into our Copse Road bookshop in Clevedon for a papercopy.”

The deadline for applications will be the 31st January 2022

Clevedon Community Bookshop at Clevedon Twilight Market in August

Welcome to Clevedon Community Bookshop. This an exciting community enterprise in Clevedon. For 14 years a small second-hand bookshop existed in Copse Road, Clevedon. The new shop is the original shop plus the one next door, enabling us to double the area. We bought 7,000 books to sell in the newly refurbished shop and started trading on the 31 December 2011.

The shop is now owned and run by people in the Clevedon area and by others committed to our objectives. We receive and sell good donated second-hand books, we also sell some new books. Our range of other items for sale include cards, gift vouchers, book-markers and cloth bags.
 
Other activities have been hosted in the shop such as; literary events, story reading for children, creative writing courses, poetry reading sessions.


To check out our previous displays, head over to the Window Dressing Hub section on our Volunteer page.
