Winstone’s enthusiastically opened its door on the 18th February 2012. The readers of Sherborne were treated to a parade of well loved characters including Spot, Peter Rabbit and The Gruffalo. The shop is run by experienced and knowledgeable staff with a passion for books and reading.
We are very keen to establish the bookshop as a community facility where people of all reading tastes can meet and discuss books and reading.
We are equally keen to support local artists, writers and societies.
