Wychwood Fair – appeal for books!

Residents of North Leigh have for many years been very generous in donating books to the Wychwood Forest Fair bookstall – and we hope this year will be no exception!

 There is no donation point in the village this year (huge thanks to Margaret for last year!) but collection can be arranged for larger quantities (50+ books, CDs and or DVDs); please contact the Wychwood Project office, 07584 262437 (Mon, Wed, Thurs)
