Dorothy Amery Readers Awards

The Dorothy Amery Readers Awards is a fund set up with the help of one of our 1st and dearest customers, Alistair who found our bookshop as we were building it. Read the full story of this chance encounter HERE  and how it continues to fill us with happiness HERE

The chair below sees Thea, the listening dragon telling her own story of how she wants to listen to your stories. This is our favourite place to read stories in the shop. Hand Painted by an amazing traditional artist Joe Herne and commisioned for the shop by Alistair.


The Dorothy Amery Readers Awards aims to put books in the hands of children who wouldn’t normally have access. We will set this up so that our other customers and friends can contribute. Some of which have already contributed and many others have enquired. Proving what we already knew. That there is a real desired to contribute to members of our community that are disadvantaged.
