Our next Saturday Storytime will take place on Saturday 30th December 2023.

Ready, Steady Squirrel' children’s book by Nicole Kinnear

We will be reading 'Ready, Steady Squirrel' by Nicole Kinnear. This is A warm, cosy story full of courage, fun and friendship!


The next meeting of the Kids Book Club for the 9-12 year old age group takes place on Sunday 7th December at 2pm.

Rooftoppers book by Katherine Rundell

We will be reading 'Rooftoppers' by Katherine Rundell.

This former Waterstones Children’s Book of the Year spins a magical yarn of a quirky orphan who takes up with a gang of urchins who scavenge on the rooftops of venerable Parisian buildings.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!


Our new Game of the Month is... Dobble Connect!

Dobble Connect game

This is the ultimate reflex game! Be the fastest team to connect 4 cards in your colour, in a row. To line up new cards, name the only common symbol between the card in your hand and those already laid down.

Everyone plays at the same time, so watch out for the other teams and block them with your cards before they do.

In Dobble Connect, there is only one common symbol between every two cards. Your goal as a team: be the first to spot the match to connect the cards!

This is a game for 2-8 players, aged 8+ years and takes around 20 minutes to play.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, from all of us at Waterstones!
