I'm delighted to report that Formby once again has a book shop in the village. Tony Higginson, who managed Pritchards, has started his own venture, Formby Books. He is joined by former colleagues and they are now based in Derbyshires, right at the heart of the village.
John Boyne will officially open the shop at 4pm today . Good luck to all involved. I urge local residents and visitor alike to support this important new local venture.
One final point Formby Books also boasts a web site, please have a look. In my experience it's quicker than any other Online book shop, there's no postage charges if you collect from the shop and you get a discount too!
