Wanstead find-a-book service

Now this feels like real progress. Wanstead’s pride and joy, the Oxfam bookshop, is now offering to take orders.

If there’s a second hand book, CD, DVD or even LP you are after, the shop will take a note of your desire and let you know if it becomes available. To make things even easier, it’s all being co-ordinated through the shop’s Facebook page, which you can find here.

To Wansteadium this all feels like a pretty smart move.

• Incidentally, the shop will be holding a ‘do’ on 9 March from 7pm, for supporters and potential volunteers to get together over tea and cakes and find out more about the charity and the ways people can get involved.
