Book & DVD Recycling Scheme 

Picture of books 

How it works:

  • You donate your unwanted children's DVDs (cert. U only please)
  • You donate your unwanted books (adult fiction & autobiography only please)
  • You take them down to the Community Shop and hand them in at the counter
  • You buy a different one (or two, or three...!)
  • You get that "feel good" factor for donating or buying and some absolute bargains to boot.

Books cost just 50p each, children's DVDs are £1 each - and when you've finished with them, bring them back again! (A couple of polite requests - please hand your donations in at the counter, as bags left in the foyer obstruct access and please no boxes full, as the shop doesn't have the storage space. Please note that we no longer accept videos. Thank you.).

All money raised goes to benefit village organisations, which receive the sum of £50 each time.
