About Us



Our objectives are to:

  • Provide a bookshop in Clevedon specialising in good second-hand books
  • Be a community led and operated co-operative enterprise
  • Offer opportunities for various community based arts, educational and social activities through the co-operative.


Clevedon Community Bookshop is set up and run as a Community Co-operative. You can buy a minimum of 10 shares at £1 each. These shares will:

  • Make you a member of the Bookshop
  • Provide working capital for the first year of trading and beyond
  • Give you an equal vote regardless of the size of your shareholding.


Your involvement thereafter, as a customer and/or volunteer in the shop or by helping to shape the business, is as much or as little as you wish.


Our business projects a move to profit by the end of the second year of trading and we will be reporting regularly on progress through General Meetings of the Co-operative.
