Bookseller Industry Award

Linghams wins the most coveted award in Independent Bookselling!

Following our success in 2012 in winning the North of England award, 2013 was the year when we won the Independent Booksellers Award for the whole of the UK. On May 13th, in an Oscars style ceremony at the Park Lane Hilton, Peter and Eleanor were presented with an engraved trophy and a cheque for £5000 from prize sponsors Gardners Wholesalers.

We know we would never have won this award without the amazing team we have here – every single member of the legendary Linghams staff team who slave away daily to give you good service, our fantastic web designer John at Rom and Ram – (who is bringing you this page today!), our wonderfully supportive accountant Libby at KBH accountants – and all our great suppliers and supporters. And of course Iain Corlett who years ago invented the whole thing.

But most of all we want to thank you, our fabulous loyal customers who ignore cut-price stores and electronic on-line ordering, and support our lovely local shop through thick and thin. Thank you for appreciating us – we certainly appreciate you! Keep on coming in!
