Huge thanks to Clevedon Community Bookshop Co-operative for the very generous £250 donation today. Come in and tag your own tile tonight from 7-8pm (donations of £250 welcome but we will also be grateful for £10!)
Michael Harriott, Chair of Clevedon Community Bookshop Co-operative said,
"The members of Clevedon Community Bookshop Co-operative are delighted to help support the Curzon's roof appeal. One of the Values and Principles that we strive to fulfil is a concern for our community. So when one of our members asked the Board to make a £250 donation to the Curzon, it was a very easy decision to make."

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.
