Greetings Cards

We stock an interesting selection of greetings cards - all blank inside for your own message - all priced at £2.00. These are available from our Wharf Street Bookshop (Monday - Friday  10.00 am - 1.30 pm).

As online purchase of individual cards would not be attractive due to minimum postage charges we would be pleased to respond to mail order requests direct to the Trust bookshop where individual orders can be processed. This would be a payment-by-cheque only service.
