A notice to market customers from Jason’s Books: We would like to remind book box customers please to put in the book box tin either £2 for each book (if you are taking one or two books), or else £5 (if you are buying three). Please pay the correct amount for books at the time when you take them from the box. In recent weeks we have been short by odd amounts which means some customers haven’t been paying the correct amount. Jason’s Books add new books to the box most weeks so that there is always new stock for customers to browse.
