“The New Welcombe book swap has got off to a great start with a good group of regular swappers coming to enjoy their book choices, a chat with fellow swappers, and the pop up tearoom. We also have some new faces discovering us every fortnight which is fantastic.

The range of books is huge and with regular swappers we have some great new reads every week. The children’s books have increased too and we have a great selection for younger readers and little ones especially. There are also lots of non-fiction from cooking to autobiography, history to gardening and lots of art, craft and hobby books to get you started on something new, or put together a little selection as an extra pressie to pop under the tree this year.

Remember you can buy books if you have none to swap at 50p each otherwise swap for free. We also have some jigsaws now which are only for swapping please and some free magazines.
