St Giles’ Book Fairs 

 

It is hoped that the next book fair will be possible in in mid April but will depend on COVID 19 restrictions in place at the time. Please note that we cannot accept any book donations for the time being. 

 

Our Book Fair will be open daily from 11.00 - 16.00

 

These Covid 19 rules will be in place. 

  1. Everyone must sanitise their hands upon entry (as well as any gloves being worn)
  2. Must wear a mask
  3. Keep two meters distance at all times
  4. Card payment or exact cash only as no change can be given 
  5. There wil be no access to the church toilets
  6. Please stay away if you have a cough or other COVID symptoms
  7. You can donate books by leaving them in the blue crates on the right as you enter the church
  8. Also comply with any other relevant Tier Two restrictions (ie not attending with people outside your household or ‘support bubble’)


Thank you for respecting these rules and protecting our volunteers, and a special thank you to those who donate books.

Used UK and Overseas stamps for the RNIB

 

We have put the box back in church for you to leave your used stamps for the RNIB. You will find it on top of the cup-board at the back of the pews. 

 

It would help if you trim the envelopes to you leave approx.1cm  around each stamp. 

 

The RNIB is the leading sight loss charity offering information, support to anyone with a sight problem. They also campaign to elimate avoidable sight loss and eye health issues. 

 

They raise money from British and foreign stamps and also colect first day covers, presentaion packs and albums. RNIB is a registered charity no 226227 (England and Wales)

 

Thank you
