    Story

    In these dark months of November to January, with rebuilding work going on all around them, John and Anwen could do with a bit of support. A group of locals are planning to help them through to the New Year and we believe £1,000 would do it. We have already seen major improvements at Peartree Pond, at “Ping” square, at the shops, with new benches, new shrubs, and floral bike planters and there is more to come with improved signage, access, decorative gardens and attractive fencing.

    The Little Bookshop at Great Linford local centre by the Co-op is a great meeting place to browse and buy books or DVDs, have a drink and a cake while you chat with friends. More than that, it provides community-based care and attention to a lot of people who find the friendly atmosphere so welcoming.

    Both immediately, by seeing The Little Bookshop stay open, and over the next few months through to the new year...

    It would cover the overheads for the three months and give them a chance to plan for 2016. Heating, lighting, fuel, supplies, duck food and advertising all need to be paid for.

    I had to retire early due to ill health. The Little Bookshop has been a lifeline, giving me a lot of help and support, which I hope will continue...
