Books and Bubbles Bookshop Party, 1st July 2017
The Clevedon Community Bookshop recently held a summer party bringing together customers, volunteers and the community to celebrate its success, and to recognise Co-operative day.
The day was a great triumph with over 50 people attending the party at the Bookshop, which had been dressed with bunting and balloons for the occasion. It was a chance for all to share stories and recall significant moments of the bookshops short history, while offering attendees welcome nibbles and drinks.
The party finished with the Community Bookshop Committee Chair, Michael Harriott, announcing the winner of the Bookshops Pen a Postcard competition, which received entries from adults and children. The first adult prize went to Geraldine Brown, with runner up Lor Hill (in photograph) receiving her prize. The winner and runner up of the children’s prize went to pupils from Yeo Moor Primary School. Well done to all those who entered the competition.
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 are hosted in the shop such as; literary events, story reading for children, creative writing courses, poetry reading sessions.
