They are also making an appeal for book donations to add to the book exchange style library.
In a recent refurbishment programme the couple decided that they would like to offer a quiet space for the community as well as an overspill area during the busier summer season.
They applied to rural pub champions, Pub is The Hub and obtained a grant of £3,000 from their Community Services Grant towards the cost of refurbishment, shelving and books. Visitors will be allowed to borrow books – and will be encouraged to leave books behind in return.
Bernard Lee from Pub is The Hub who helped to co-ordinate the project said: “In all the hustle and bustle of today’s noisy world it is lovely to think that the Peldon community and its visitors can enjoy a quiet pint and a book in their village pub. I congratulate Tim and Josie on their vision and hope that locals embrace and enjoy this marvellous literary haven.”
