The Friends held two second-hand book sales at the Museum of Somerset on Sunday 15 June and Saturday 21 June. These were scheduled to coincide with Father’s Day on the Sunday and Taunton’s Somerfest on the Saturday, the latter celebration taking place at a number of locations around the town centre. There was an addition to the usual reading matter as plants donated by our members were also on sale. Across the two sales £186.56 was raised and this will be put with other funds and ultimately be used for the benefit of the Museum of Somerset. Our grateful thanks go out to all those Friends who gave up their time, energy and resources, including plants, to make the events a success.
