WE were delighted to take our first trip to the new independent book shop in St Helens town centre, as highlighted in last week’s Star.

What a lovely place.

A modern, airy store with a lovely coffee shop and plenty of seating. Excellent for families.

I picked up a couple of Christmas presents and I’m sure I’ll be back again before too long.

Well done to all those who made this happen.

We need more of this in our town centre.

Happy mum, St Helens
