This is the third booksale they’re doing so the operation is pretty slick and they have thousands of books at low, low prices – hardly anything more than £2 and paperbacks five for £1.  They’re sorted so people can find what they’re interested in and they offer tea and cakes and a chance to sit down.  Transport is easy to the Saville Centre, 436 Lewisham High Street, London, SE13 6LJ.  It is a couple of blocks south of Lewisham Hospital on loads of bus routes that run from Lewisham (Southern and South Eastern Rail services and the DLR) to Catford (with Catford and Catford Bridge railway stations connecting to the Overground, Ladywell and St. John’s, Nunhead and Peckham, etc.).

All and everyone welcome – and if people have books to get rid of we are taking them in on the day…
