Celebrating the opening of Holyport's Book Booth

  • 10 May 2019

On Friday 26th April, Theresa May officially opened Holyport’s Book Booth – a red telephone box that has been converted into a mini village library.

The telephone box in Stroud Farm Road is now a place to swap books which locals have been able to do since the booth was filled with donations in February.

Tate Pickering, a student from Holyport, suggested the repurposing of the telephone box and local villager, Kirsty Clark, led a refurbishment team to make it happen.

Villagers and local students from Holyport CofE Primary and Holyport College attended the official opening. Theresa remarked on the huge benefit the booth will be to the community before cutting the ribbon.

Theresa also spoke to pupils who asked her about her favourite books. She commented on how wonderful it is to lose yourself in a book and donated the novel Dissolution by CJ Sansom.
