Hello everybody , we are scott and amy who with the help of a small goverment loan opened the only independant bookshop in our area , its been so far so good and have had such an amazing local response from the public and local authors wishing to hold readings and  signings.

the only problem is we started with very limited funds and would love to greatly improve our childrens reading room and add more bookcases and also start to offer light refreshments to the public., plus add a ramp for the disabled and to afford to hold more community events.

Now a little bit of background about us , we are big big book lovers and always had a dream of opening a community based bookshop but i was long term unemployed and amy was bringing up her disabled son and when my local jobcentre asked me if i would consider going self unemployed i jumped at the chance but with only a small government loan we have took this project as far as we can , so would really appreciate any help that you , the wonderful public can offer us.

only last week we held our 1st local community event hosting many local authors where they did readings and signings , it was such a success we would love to do more , even the local press was interested as you can see in this pic.

we aspire to be very community based and help local and independant authors and artists at every turn and as the only outlet for this in our area we are expecting a good response , we have allready created the only independant author bookcase for miles around but would love to add more , plus we have a dedicated childrens room but would love to improve it for all the local children , pictured below is our authors bookcase and the childrens room.

we really hope you can help us with our dreams and ambitions
