Wanstead bookshop needs staff (no pay but good for conscience)

With just about a month until the opening of the Oxfam bookshop in Wanstead High Street, the builders are in the former travel shop getting things ready. Other retailers seem happy at the news, with one expressing relief that predictions of a Costa Coffee or a Subway didn’t happen.

Oxfam area manager Mark Appiah told Wansteadium he was “really pleased the community in Wanstead is so enthusiastic about the bookshop” and asked anyone interested in volunteering in the shop to get in touch.
