Planet Droitwich

Planet DroitwichPlanet Droitwich is a Community bookshop located in St Andrews Square shopping centre in Droitwich Spa; two doors down from Humphries shoeshop and next door to the Mobility shop, in what was once Beaubelles.

We are partnered with The Global Educational Trust who fund both the means and financial help to enable education to reach people most in need both abroad and in the U.K.

We accept books – with a few exceptions – from many sources and although we are classed as a ‘free’ bookshop, we find that most of our customers are happy to give a donation, to be passed on to our sister charity, mentioned above.

All our books are categorised, all in alphabetical order, ranging from – wildlife, travel, general fiction, thrillers, biographies, humour, poetry, photography, crafts, religion, selfhelp, movies and TV, theatre, romance, sci-fi, cooking to gardening and much, much more.

Nothing is too much trouble for Planet Droitwich volunteers, who will help you find the area and seek the book you are searching for and they are always on the move, constantly filling up spaces left when books are taken out, keeping the books tidy and of course putting away the numerous books donated, into their correct places.

We also have a table in the shop, at present displaying books on Wildlife and Conservation, which we are happy to leave clear when a local group wishes to spend a day with us promoting their cause.

Our thanks for being here go to our local authority and of course, our landlord who is granted a reduction in business rates. Founder members of Planet are The Droitwich Art Network and Transition Droitwich.

All things considered, we believe that what  we do is a great benefit to our wonderful planet, so look after it, it is the only one we are ever likely to have.

Please come and visit us, you will be glad that you did.
