Book sale success

Low prices attracted bookworms to Bognor Regis Museum.

 

From 10am-4pm on Satuday, the museum opened up their doors to host another successful book sale. The event raised almost £60.

 

Available were an array of second-hand books, something for everyone.

 

The museum is run by the Bognor Regis Local History Society and has been in the building since 2011.

 

The society was founded in January, 1979, by the late Mr.K.R. Crum to bring together those interested in the history of Bognor Regis and district.

 

They wanted to encourage the research and recording of its past and present.

 

In 1984, the society established a museum in the town, firstly at Park Lodge, Hotham Park, then in 1997 at 69, High Street and now at the former Berkeley Arms in West Street.

 

The museum hosts an array of events for Bognor Regis residents, as well of those visiting the town from further afield.

 

They offer a variety of talks, with the next one taking place at 7:30pm on Monday 14 at The Hub, 73 Queensway.

 

Gary Purser will be talking about the Swing Riots (Farm uprisings in the 1830s in the southern counties, including Sussex.)
