RHSV Annual Booksale 2014 - UPDATE


The booksale has been a great success for the RHSV  - and for the people who got some great bargains.  The sale will continue at the RHSV Headquarters for the rest of the week - there are still plenty of bargains to be had, so come and check out the books between 10 am and 4 pm (3 pm Fridays) at least until next Wednesday.
