FRIENDS and former customers of the long-standing owners of Windsor Bookshop have been invited to an 'open house' event to mark their retirement this weekend.

Tony and Anne Hallett, who have run the independent town centre bookshop for the last 15 years, are set to hand over the reins to close friend Mel Griffin.

The bookshop will be renamed 'Griffin Books' and will carry on trading as usual.

The shop will be open all day on Saturday, August 30, with all welcome to the 'open house' event to say goodbye to Tony and Anne.
