Our community shop Leaf and Groove opened on Saturday 9th December. It sells books, vinyl, CDs and DVDs to raise money for the Forest Hill Library, which is now run by the community. Leaf and Groove was crowdfunded and relies on donations of books etc.
It has been brought to our attention that whilst an update was emailed out a few weeks ago to all backers that we haven’t updated any of social media. So here were are rectifying that.
The Archie Parker are hosting a games night for us. Come along for games, beer, chilli and records with all profits going to raise funds for Leaf and Groove.
The friends of the Horniman Museum have made a very generous donation.
Our Spacehive crowdfunder is live. Please pledge to help Leaf and Groove happen.
Forest Hill Library is part of the Lewisham network of community-run libraries. It is uniquely run by V22, an arts organisation; The Forest Hill Society; and, The Forest Hill Traders’ Association.
So what is Leaf and Groove? It is primarily a book shop, dealing in second hand, largely donated books that will be sold in order to provide a sustainable income for Forest Hill Library.
