Much Ado Books in Alfriston, East Sussex, is one of the Shedworking staff's favourite bookshops so we were delighted to learn that they are adding a shedworkingesque element to their business in the form of a shepherd's hut (picture above). The shop is undergoing significant renovations at the moment and the hut will be filled with books. Much Ado is also becoming a Social Enterprise (read more about this on their Prospero's Project site). Here's what they say about one of the new developments:
Currently we are developing a project giving new books to clients of foodbanks. We think it vitally important to reach people who may not be in a position to own books – or even to reach a library – with books they can enjoy. So we’ve been supplying hundreds of books to foodbanks in Hailsham and Eastbourne, and hope to expand the number of foodbanks we work with – we recently began working with a foodbank in Newhaven. We are also working with local schools, including the Ringmer Academy. From helping supply books for their libraries to printing projects with the students, we hope to share the pleasures of reading.
