Covid19/Coronavirus - How it affects our business update - as of 09/10/2020.
No real changes to our book policy have come about. The rules are tightening up again as the virus spreads again, but we never really loosened up here at Peakirk Books. Nothing has changed regards our decision to cancel our attendance at ALL book fairs for the remainder of 2020 & for the beginning of 2021. Safety and health continues to be our priority. Officially PBFA book fairs are cancelled until the end of November 2020, with the remainder being under review although they are looking extremely doubtful too. In fact, the York Book Fair scheduled for January 2021 has already been cancelled, so unfortunately the recommencement of book fairs in the new year is not currently looking good. We will make further annoucements when details from the PBFA are made available. We note Etcetera Fairs have been cancelled until further notice.
In the meantime we can continue to supply your book needs without attending a fair! Simply contact us by email or phone with your "wants list" and we'll do the rest. We will also try to keep in touch with our regular book fair customers around the UK and we're confident that we can manage a "virtual book fair" mail order service very easily. We are also participating in the PBFA Virtual book fairs on the 29th of each month.
Our internet Business continues as usual. Fortunately Jeff and I have remained in good health,(fingers crossed) iand royal mail continue to pick up our post for us. We hope things dont get too much worse in this extended 1st wave cum second wave.
Take care - wherever in the world you are. Heather & Jeff.

We have decided to continue trying to encourage our customers to use our own site for purchases, and so the offer of 10% discount for anyone who decides to buy their book/s here, rather than buying it from one of the agencies that stocks our books such as ABE or amazon, stays throughout 2019. To do this just use the code PBST2 when you make your purchase. (You may only use 1 voucher offer per purchase, so please do not try and use this along with another code).
For general enquiries - we are usually here most days keeping normal working hours. However if we are not there, we have a 24 hour answerphone, so just leave a message or send us an e-mail on [email protected].
Our address is Cherry Tree Lodge. Guist Bottom Road, Stibbard, Fakenham, Norfolk. NR21 0AQ.
