Margins Bookshop: Our base in the centre of Wetherby

What is Margins about?

Margins Bookshop emerged from our temporary Pop-up church at 2 Church Street in Wetherby. We offer second-hand books for sale as well as providing a place for people to drop in and chat, browse the books and bring in their own books for us to re-cycle.

We also run regular and occasional activities to help support and serve our community.

The shop is normally open from 10am to 2pm, Tuesday to Saturday. We are not open on Mondays.

Sunday worship still takes place at Deighton Gates School at 10.30am.

Artspace in Margins - Bruce Williams

Artspace is where we display work by local artists and photographers. Our latest exhibition features the work of local artist Bruce Williams, a member of East Keswick Art Club.

Bruce's career as an artist began badly when his first schoolteacher refused to allow him to progress to Art in the second year, but that didn't stop Bruce from drawing, doodling and painting at home.

Bruce takes up the story: "Earlier in my life, the necessity of passing exams and earning a living was my first priority; it was only later that I returned to art a bit more seriously. Everyone needs inspiration and I have found it mostly in the immediate environment, whether at home or away. One particular subject - railways - has always been of particular interest and I am a great admirer of talented artists such as Terence Cuneo, David Shepherd and Philip Hawkins."

Watercolours remain Bruce's prime interest, but recently he has started experimenting with pen and ink. Overall his preference is for a rather loose approach to painting, encouraging the colours to “do the work“.

Do pop in to Margins to have a look at Bruce's work. Here's a sample to tickle your palette...
