We are so pleased to announce that Laura Goodchild has started work as the very first manager of our bookshop.  Laura went to school at Allanson Street in Parr followed by Haydock High school and then Carmel College.  She has a degree in Creative Writing from Edge Hill University and joins us from Waterstones in Wigan where she was Lead Children’s Bookseller.  Laura commented “I am over the moon to have the opportunity to manage a community bookshop in my home town – it really is a dream come true.  I can’t wait till the shop is open and I can get to know all our customers, as well as working with the schools, libraries and community groups”.  For our part we are thrilled to welcome Laura to the team and look forward very much to working with her over the months and years to come.
