Summer is almost here! Unfortunately, it’s still difficult for us to get away on that well needed exotic trip abroad, so as a result UK staycations and day trips are becoming more and more popular. If you’re looking for somewhere coastal to visit this year, why not check out Frinton-on-Sea?
Frinton-on-Sea is a beautiful seaside town with an amazing town centre and community. It also happens to be home to four of our shops; three of which are situated in Connaught Avenue and one at the Triangle Shopping Centre.
Let us tell you a bit about them:
Books – 133 Connaught Avenue

We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
