  3. Report on the Ripon & Leeds Diocesan website: Author to cut tape as Christian bookshop rescued:

    Manager of the bookshop, Julie Jowett, will become Northern Regional Manager for the Living Oasis chain as part of the rescue, and says she is delighted by the news. “It was a big blow when Wesley Owen went into administration as Harrogate was a profitable shop. We have received many messages of support from churches in the region and the Nationwide Christian Trust is keen to work in partnership with them. They have bought the building, and invested hundreds of thousands of pounds safeguarding most of the jobs here at Harrogate. God has answered our prayers and we are really excited to be reopening this Saturday.”

  5. I’m glad I found this blog as my niece is getting confirmed soon and I’ve been looking to buy her a Good News Bible (I had one when i was young). I could get one online but I’m a traditionalist and like to walk into a shop, have a natter and buy things.
