The Book shed – 10 Manilla Road, Oxley Vale, Tamworth.


A couple of weeks ago Rotary Club of Tamworth member Bruce McCorkell stated that it was a real shame that we had a book shed full of jigsaw puzzles when he was hearing these were very popular during the period that people were self-isolating. Unfortunately the book shed is closed due to the COVID-19 virus.

President Steve Beaton was subsequently listening to 88.9FM last week and DJ Ray McCoy was talking about families getting jigsaw puzzles out of the cupboard for something to do during these tough times of isolation.

That started Steve thinking on how he could get our jigsaw puzzles out into the community.

He contacted the radio station, and they subsequently interviewed him last Sunday and again on Monday and they came up with a plan that Radio 88.9FM would advertise that the Rotary Club of Tamworth had jigsaw puzzles and were giving them away to the public and would even deliver then free of charge to help out in these difficult times.

Steve has had many phone calls and has been busy delivering the jigsaw puzzles around Tamworth.

It has been a great collaboration between the Rotary Club of Tamworth and 88.9FM and they are going to continue to promote this very generous community donation being undertaken by the Club.
