JOINT PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT Embargoed until 17.00hrs on Monday 9th March 2015 CLC Bookshops are delighted to announce that re:fresh books and christian resources at Tolworth in Surrey, will join our group of 20 UK bookshops from the end of March 2015. Since 2004, re:fresh books has been run as a successful independent Christian bookshop by Marguerite and David Williams and a team of committed staff members. It has a prominent location on Tolworth Broadway, just off the A3. Benefitting from strong links with local churches, re:fresh books is well regarded locally, retains a strong sense of mission on the high street and shares many core values with CLC. Marguerite Williams, co-owner of re:fresh books and christian resources said: “We are thankful to God that the ministry of re:fresh books is to continue in the hands of an organisation in which we have complete confidence. We are grateful to many local Christians who have supported us in prayer over recent months and would encourage all our customers to give CLC their 100% support’. Eddie Olliffe, Interim General Manager of CLC International (UK) said: ‘High Street Christian bookselling lies deep in CLC’s DNA, and we remain fully committed to retail. It is encouraging to see those independent shops, such as Tolworth, that have come through the recent challenging economic times and continue to flourish. We are therefore very pleased to have this opportunity to continue the ministry of providing Bibles and Christian Resources, and to serve the Christian community in Tolworth and in South-West London and North Surrey’.
