Poor Paws holds a book sale

Spring has sprung and the end of the Winter was hard and very brrrrrrrr !  So I am sure a lot of you spent  many a lovely evening in front of the fire with a glass in hand and a good book.  Then, disaster, no more books !!  Fear not, help is at hand, it's that time of year again.  The Poorpaws Dog Rescue/Cancer Research Barn Book Sale will be held at Lesley Judd's lovely barn and garden in the hamlet of Beliben on Saturday 7th April from 10 am to 4pm. 
To get to Beliben, find Sauzet (Lot ), then leave Sauzet on the Villeseque/Cahors road.  As soon as you exit Sauzet there is a road on your right to St. Pantaleon - ignore it and go straight on.  the next on the right is a small lane to Beliben (there will be markers).  Turn right and keep going until you see the house and barn on your right.   If you are coming from the Cahors direction Beliben is on the left just before Sauzet.
We do hope that as many of you as possible will come along to support us.  There will be the usual large selection of books and dvd's as well as the almost legendary fabulous home made cakes to enjoy with your tea or coffee, or indeed to buy and take home with you. Fear not, none of the cakes will be made by me - I always end up taking my chocolate cornflake crunchies home and pigging out !
A plus this year will be a prize draw !!!
If you have books and/or dvd's to donate (sorry, no videos) in English, French or Dutch please contact me by email or 'phone 0565245303 and I will be happy to arrange to meet up and/or arrange collection.  Or, bring them along with you on the day -although we would prefer to have them before if poss. 
Even if dog rescue is not your thing I am sure that each and every one of us has some reason to be thankful for cancer research so please do come along and if you have friends or family staying for Easter, bring them along too.  A good time guaranteed !
