We’re in!

Well, two days ago I signed the lease on the new premises and yesterday I picked up the keys – we’re in!  The Tree House will be taking over the former Picture Shop on Warwick Road, near the clock tower.  Our lovely hand-painted sign from the old premises is now in the window to let people know – eventually it will be incorporated into the fascia sign above the window.

So we will now retrieve our books from storage – thank you so much to Paul Seward at E-Warehousing for storing our books and the sign and some bits of furniture (and the tree!).  We hope to be up and running very soon.

A huge thank you to all the humblingly generous people who have contributed to our crowdfunding (which is still ongoing!) – you have made it possible for us to secure the lease and get started.  The Round Table have also made a very large donation to help us get the fascia board changed and buy some of the furniture we need, including bookcases.

If you walk past and see us in there, do call in and say hello!  We hope to have the Film Club back up and running very soon and are already planning our next Mindfulness course.  You can join our mailing list if you haven’t already to be kept up to date with events.  Some fabulous musicians already planning to come and play for us!  But mostly it’s about the books, and we will have those for sale as soon as we possibly can.

New premises

We appear to have found new premises…lease being drawn up, fingers crossed it all goes smoothly!

If you would like to contribute to startup funds, please go to our Support page…we need a deposit for the lease, and we will need shelving and/or bookcases, and as soon as possible we would like to install our own fascia sign, which is an expensive business.

As soon as we have possession, we’ll start showing films and doing bits and pieces until we can open as a bookshop again.  Will publish more details once it’s all secured – don’t want to tempt fate too much!
