Petworth Society book sale

THE next Petworth Society book sale will be held at the Leconfield Hall, Petworth, on Saturday, September 13.

Admission, as usual, is free.

As ever, the thousands of books are 90 per cent fresh stock.

With the monthly sale now in its 15th year, the sales in July and August have broken all previous records.

Proceeds go towards funding the Petworth Society quarterly magazine, now in its 40th year – the September issue being number 157.

The society is a registered charity.

This month’s sale coincides with the Tour of Britain cycle race which will pass the Leconfield Hall during the morning.

Mr Peter Jerrome, the society chairman, said: “We are not expecting the cyclists to come to the sale – if they did, we would never get them out again!”
