The Vine

It has been so lovely to be able to be open and to serve our customers again. We are very impressed with those of you who have sat outside despite the weather not always being particularly suited to al fresco dining! We look forward to the 17th May when (we hope) we will be able to serve customers indoors as well. Meanwhile the bookshop is there for all your Christian book, card and gift needs. To help promote what we do to a wider audience we have set up a new Instagram account, so if this is your thing, please search for thevinebookshop and follow us for regular pics and updates (please note thevinehinckley account is no longer in use). Another development is that The Vine is now signed up to the online bookselling platform bookshop.org. Bookshop.org is dedicated to supporting independent "bricks and motar" bookshops who would find it difficult to have their own transactional website. You can order books from this website and, as long as you choose The Vine as your bookshop, we will benefit. We hope this will help with customers who are having difficulty accessing us due to our restricted opening hours. Use this link https://uk.bookshop.org/shop/thevinehinckley or search for us under "choose a bookshop" at the top of the homepage. Please let us have your feedback. As with everyone, The Vine is having to adjust to life post lockdown and, eventually, post pandemic. Things are not the same as they were before March 23rd 2020 and because of this we are looking for new volunteers and new trustees to help us get back to a full service as things ease over the coming months and as we look to the years to come. If you feel it is important that Hinckley and the surrounding area continues to have a Christian bookshop in the town as well as a friendly, safe space for people to meet over coffee or lunch, then please consider supporting us in one of these ways. We are in particular need of volunteers for the coffee shop and trustees who have secretarial skills or experience in finance. Please make contact with us in person, by email (thevinehinckley@hotmail.co.uk) or by phone (01455 612345) if you are interested. God Bless Jessica Harrison Manager
