From Author cuts tape to reopen rescued Harrogate bookshop, 14/02/2010:

The Nationwide Christian Trust says it also plans to reopen the former Wesley Owen bookshop in Vicar Lane, Leeds in mid-March and will be working in partnership with Leeds churches to develop the shop with new cafe and meeting facilities. A meeting of local church leaders is planned for Thursday March 4th.

Ken Spence says:

Karen is currently rounding up support to go independent, albeit in a less expensive but equally accessible location as the current shop. If anyone is interested in supporting this or offering any help just give her a ring at the shop: 0113 2458264.

  5. My son & his girlfriend have just announced their engagement. They are planning to get married next summer. They would like a gospel choir at the wedding and I’m trying to find a local one in West Yorkshire if possible. And would like help in tracking one down?

    Please forward details of any?
