Well-known author to open bookshop

CLEVEDON Community Bookshop will be officially opened at noon on December 31.

Local author Susan Sallis will open the bookshop and will also sign copies of her books.

Set up by a community cooperative, the shop in Copse Road has been funded through the sale of more than 5,000 shares.

Volunteers have refitted and decorated the shop before building 43 book cases.

Stock has been bought from the previous bookshop and been supplemented by people’s donations.
