Outings of the Sales Stand represent a source of income and the principal opportunity to publicise our cause. We visit a variety of events throughout the summer and extra hands are always useful in setting up, manning and taking down the stand.
Contact Roger Evans for further information. Donations of books and other typical car boot sale type goods are welcome at any time.

Does anyone know of any other events around the North West area where we could attend with our sales stand? Please let Roger Evans know.
Books – Book – Books
Do you have surplus books? Let us have them they will help raise money for WRG by:
1. Sales direct to WRG members and contacts
2. Sales on the WRG North West sales stall
3. Sales to second hand bookshops
4. If we can’t sell them as books, they raise money as waste paper at our ‘Paperchase’.
We take anything - hardback, paperback, fiction, non-fiction, brand new or falling apart, learned tomes or ephemera.
Everything sorted book by book, so just give us the lot! Waterway magazines? No demand these days, so they usually go for waste paper.
How to get books to us:
☺ At our ‘Paperchases’ – not quite monthly in Crumpsall, North Manchester
☺ At one of our ‘digs’ or a canal event attended by the sales stall.
☺ Occasionally we can collect – this depends on distances, quantity, timing etc.
The appearance of a book can make a big difference to a dealer's willingness to buy, so we are again looking for someone, or someones (is there such a word?) to do some regular minor cosmetic work on books received as donations at our waste paper collections. This would be mainly dusting, cleaning off price labels, rubbing out pencil marks, and generally making the books presentable. No bookbinding skills are needed.
