The Rural Oscars Results


Well, sadly we did not win or get the runner up position. But we were up against some tough competition and many much larger organisations. We are still thrilled to have got this far and intend to enjoy the party come what may!

Thanks again to everyone for your support, encouragement and interest.

New Book Exchange Facility

We have started an experimental “Book Exchange” to raise funds for the shop.
To start with, we are looking for donations of good condition paperback novels. They will then be offered for 50p donation per exchange or £1.00 per book without a swap.
There is already a nice and growing selection of books in a box within the coffee shop area.
Come in and have a look.
