Cathedral Bookstore rises from the ashes

SINCE a devastating fire caused substantial damage to the Anglican Op Shop and Cathedral Bookstore in July, the Grafton parish has been busy salvaging what they could and relocating both operations to their temporary homes while repairs and restocking is underway.

The op shop has been trading out of Edwards Hall in the cathedral grounds for a number of weeks, while the bookstore re-opened for business on Wednesday at their new address at the Bishop's Registry, 50 Victoria St (opposite post office and court house).

The new bookshop, located on the ground floor of the Registry building, is open between 9.30am and 4.30pm daily. The phone has been re-diverted and computers are set up so trading can continue as per normal.

Bookshop staff would like to take this opportunity to thank customers for their patience and understanding during this tumultuous time and encourage passers-by to call in and say hello.
