Sun shines on Bookmark at Community Market

24th Aug 2013

BOOKMARK volunteers were out in force at the Blairgowrie Community Market yesterday to spread the word about the upcoming book festival.

Activity centred around a stall stacked high with secondhand books for sale as well as promotional literature for the festival.  

After a drizzly start to the day, skies cleared and the volunteers were able to venture out from under the BOOKMARK gazebo and mingle with the market visitors. So many programmes were  taken up we had to send out for more to satisfy demand. Additional information sheets were also provided for those who had never experienced the delights of a book festival to let them know what to expect. We also talked with some very enthusiastic children who are now off to share with their friends the news about the Gruffalo Trail and the Katie Morag event. The children also had their own little market corner for colouring activities with the BOOKMARK logo. 

 By the end of the afternoon book sales had generated another £45 for the BOOKMARK kitty.

All in all, a great opportunity to engage with the public in a friendly, community environment. Many thanks to all the BOOKMARK volunteers who helped on the day. 


Thank YOU all for such a wonderful event, Bookmark was one of the most warm, welcoming and efficient book festivals I have attended and have been to a few now.
