A Novel Idea Bookshop

COVID-19 Update – The Bookshop is currently closed due to the coronoavirus restrictions.  We will return when safety considerations allow – keep an eye on our website, social media and information in the window,  Stay safe!

When Catalyst and the Welcome Project took over a bookshop in Godalming as part of their work to improve wellbeing and mental health, they asked local people to come up with a new name and ‘A Novel Idea’ was born.

It provides a range of high quality books and the income generated supports the Catalyst Welcome Project which offers a range of wellbeing activities to local people of working age.

The bookshop has been and continues to be staffed entirely by a team of dedicated volunteers many of whom have benefited from engagement with the Welcome Project.  There is a range of donated high quality fiction, non fiction and children’s books.

If you have any comments about the bookshop or want to get in touch about any matter, please do so and we will respond as quickly as we can.
