A new book and vinyl shop has opened in Forest Hill to raise money for the local community library.
Leaf & Groove, a second-hand book and vinyl shop is the latest addition to Dartmouth Road, Forest Hill and though the shop is independent from Forest Hill community library, all profits will go towards maintaining the library, which became independent from Lewisham Council more than a year ago.
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.
