LJST’s Presence At Bristol Harbour Festival 2014

Saturday 19th July 2014 saw two members of the LJS Trust, vice-chairman Bill and Secretary Mark, brave the vagaries of a British summer to help man our bookstall in Betty’s Boathouse (as we like to call it) during Bristol’s 45th annual Harbour Festival.

Situated on Redcliffe Wharf, it should be called the ‘Benjamin Perry Boathouse for Scouts and Guides’, but we always like to call it Betty’s because she has such a kindly presence. We were joined by old friends Roy of Fiducia Press and Rich of Tangent Books.

Anyhoo, stuffed with bargain bacon baps at just a £1 we got down to the serious task of raising funds for the Trust by selling our books and I’m pleased to say our Privateers book was the best seller out everyone’s wares.

If you missed us due to the heavy downpour, please look out for us again on ‘Open Doors Day’ on Saturday 13th September 2014 where we shall be hard at it once again in one of the last of Bristol’s original dock buildings.
