Driven to reading

Seaways Bookshop FishguardBridget and Barbara have been commuting through Dinas for the past four years, from their homes in Newport and Newcastle Emlyn to their beautiful ‘Seaways’ bookshop in Fishguard’s West Street. The shop has been there a long time, but was rescued by the present owners about four years ago when it was in danger of closing down. So Fishguard has its own independent bookshop,  featured in The Guardian’s Guide to Bookshops in Wales. It’s a rare treasure to be used and appreciated by all who visit the town.

There is a brilliant section of local interest books,

and a whole room of bargain shelves and cards.

Conscientious browsers will also find some delightful crafts, hand-made by local artists. Have a look at their Christmas advent calendar window now. Get up close to see the month’s worth of creative surprises that will be coming to its Christmassy best over the next few days.

About bookvolunteer

I'm passionate about books, about Oxfam and about making the world a better place. When I'm not filling the shelves in Oxfam Wilmslow, I might be found reading the books I've bought in the beautiful surroundings of North Pembrokeshire.
