The book sale at St Augustine’s Church on Saturday 2nd April succeeded in raising more than £750 for Sorby funds.

Many thanks are due, particularly to the Estate of the late Mary Acton, and to the many kind folk who generously donated all the books for sale. Grateful thanks also to the folk who came along to buy and to the members of Sorby Council involved in setting up and running the sale, several of them for the first time.

We remembered the experience and wise skills of John Lintin Smith, who has organised the sale for many years, but sadly passed away a few weeks beforehand.
