RNLI Lyme Regis Thank Broadwindsor Community

Villagers responded by appearing with bags, cardboard boxes and with car boots loaded full of books at the Post Office on Friday, 23rd April.  Even more books had been left for collection at the Telephone Box Book Exchange.  Thank you to Broadwindsor Community Stores for providing some much needed cardboard boxes! The books were collected by a Lyme Regis RNLI Supporter earlier this week on Tuesday.
