This coming weekend, the Rotary Club of Cromwell will hold their popular and much awaited annual Summer Book Sale.

After an uncertain year, and now the Omicron variant of Covid, Cromwell Rotary Club are bringing a little bit of normal to a very unusual couple of years.

Again the Cromwell Bowling Club will bulge with books and magazines covering subject after subject to help navigate the way through a stunning summer.

The focus for Rotarians now is hosting a book sale in Covid times.

Vaccination passes will be required for entry and the beauty of this is, in such uncertain times, with annual events we know and love being postponed or cancelled, the Summer Book Sale is a stabilizer, it’s happening, and that will thrill a lot of bookworms, history buffs, cooks, crafters and home astronomers.

It’s one event we can look forward to, and an opportunity to delve into the pages of some wonderful books.

Whether it’s something special you’re looking for to read by the lake, or a new subject you’re interested in, you are bound to find it amongst the rows and rows of books.

Cooking, knitting, gardening, horror, epic historical drama or feng shui, the list of interests and reading material is truly endless.

Each year this sale attracts readers from across the region, and especially appeals to holiday makers looking to lounge the sunny afternoons away while losing themselves within the pages of another time or place.

“Rotarians put a lot of work into the book sale and we are thrilled to be continuing on with the sale, intime for all those summer readers to enjoy picking up a new book or two,” says Cromwell Rotarian Pam Broadhead.

“We are looking forward to welcoming you all, bring your friends and neighbours, come along and enjoy the wonderful collection of books on offer.

“Now is the perfect time to restock the book shelf for winter,” she adds.

The Summer Book Sale will be held on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th January from 9.00am – 5.00pm in the Cromwell Bowling Club on Alpha Street.

A vaccine pass will be required for entry.
