100 Club - May winners 

The May 2024 winners of the 100 Club have been drawn! 
 
 

The Friendly Bookshop 

The Friendly Bookshop is now fully open, well-stocked and awaiting your custom! 
Many thanks go to the residents of Burbage for the generous donation of thousands of books of all kinds, and bookcases that were badly needed. Books are 50p minimum each except for gift sets which come at a slight premium, but any larger donation will be much appreciated to help us to keep our library open. 
 
Carole Kemp of the library said, “All of the books are now shelved and put in author order for everyone to find easily. There are plenty to choose from; fiction, cookery, gardening, biographies and many more. Most authors seem to have a book in there of one sort or another so hopefully we will cater for all and of course, there are plenty of children’s books from birth to teenagers as well.”
