has been running for over thirty five years. In these days when the going is hard for many small businesses, and for independent bookshops in particular, it is a significant achievement for a bookshop to survive for such a time, and Newham Bookshop isn’t just surviving, it’s positively thriving.
Founded to provide a source of books, education and play materials as part of the service of the fledgling Newham Parents’ Centre, it was for many years the entrance to the centre which had its offices and teaching rooms upstairs and alongside.
Over this time, the bookshop has established an important role in its own right. Providing students, teachers, parents and the whole community with the books they require, all with an efficient service in welcoming and friendly surroundings.
