Beach-hut Book-Swaps

Pathways beach hut themed box

The new book-swap-box at Pathways, a residential setting for people with a history of mental health issues, has proved very popular.

Pathways tell us:

“There has been lots of interest in the book-swap, and we love finding new books in the box and meeting the people using the beach-hut.

“The neighbours seem pretty pleased as well. One knocked on the door to tell us she thought the book-swap was the best thing Pathways had ever done for the community, and it showed how well Pathways is run.

“We learned lots of new skills including how to drill, how to put in screws, how to paint, how to cement a post, how to make invites and more; these skills with the skills we will gain in keeping the stock fresh and keeping the Community Book Swap going will be valuable to our futures.

pop-up bookshop needs a new home

free books how it worksOur team of bookshop volunteers is still searching for a new home for the project in Bexhill.

The pop-up bookshop reused thousands of books and encouraged people to read. The friendly volunteers also provided a welcoming place for people to pop in for a chat. People gave donations for their books which raised funds for our craft and DIY sessions at local Refuges.

Meanwhile, the shop they used was kept open, used and aired and the owner quickly found a commercial tenant.

The team is looking for an empty shop in Bexhill to continue the project – please get in touch if you’re able to help.
