It has been a busy month

Half term, a lot of walkers, sunshine, showers, prolonged rain, too much wind – and so many old friends and new coming into The Cook Book. It is always good when we’re busy, such a buzz of conversation out front and well-organised action from the moment your order is taken until it is placed in front of you.

Weight and Flight

On 9th June Angela Stoner and Claudia Hoffman took their audience on a journey through words and music.

33 people packed into the Cook Book, stripped of tables and converted to a theatre, for a fabulous evening of Angela’s poetry interpreted by Claudia on a range of instruments including the Celtic Harp, violin, tree harp and singing bowl.

Bosorne Books

Philippa in her usual perch, pricing books, Aggie helping

Bosorne Books is now being managed by Philippa and, as you will notice, she’s got the book shop very well organised.

Philippa is now responsible for the buying as well as the selling. She and David still work together on the more unusual and expensive books, and David does the collecting of books from people’s homes as that is often very heavy work.

The main reason for the change is that Philippa knows a great deal about books and, with David cooking five days a week, he doesn’t have the time he used to.
