This year will be the eighth annual Linskill Book Fair and this ever popular event will open its doors on Friday 18th May at 9am to let avid collectors and readers rummage through boxes and boxes of books. Over 30,000 books have now been generously donated by the community and local businesses with genres ranging from romance, history, crime, art, biographies, cookery, geography, gardening, travel, health, poetry, sociology, children’s books and many more popular and abstract topics.
The Linskill Centre in North Shields is calling out to the community for donations of books in preparation for their Book Fair running from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th May. This annual fundraising event has proved to be very popular in the past, attracting hundreds of people looking to replenish their reading list, pick up a bargain, or even find a ‘collectable’ whilst supporting their local community centre.
This bank holiday weekend the Linskill Centre in North Shields is joining 300 other community businesses around the country to celebrate the third annual Community Business Weekend.
Aimed at shining a light on the 7,000 community businesses across England, Community Business Weekend offers a unique opportunity for local people to visit and see how they can get involved.
