I was really pleased to find the Malvern Book Co-operative on one of the side roads in Great Malvern on Saturday after hearing about it on the local news, and thinking the idea of serving Fairtrade tea, coffee and homemade cakes and selling books was lovely. The aim of the co-operative is to provide a community focused bookshop and cafe in central Malvern. There are currently 5 founder members of the co-op and over 50 consumer members which fund it. The co-operative really need future investment to stay open and are currently looking for investors to help. The share offer is open until 1st June 2012. For more information read here.
