After six months of long hours and hard work, Burgess Hill District Lions opened their new book shop in the town on Saturday (July 1).

Town mayor Jacqui Landriani cut the ribbon and officially declared the Book Den open and many came to check out the new shop until it closed at 4pm.

Burgess Hill Marching Youth performed to the large crowd who had gathered to watch the opening in Church Walk.

Burgess Hill Community Radio also came along and the crowd listened to local singer Martha Clayton, who recently won the Martlets Talent Competition.

Books can be donated to the shop, which is open from 9.30am until 4pm, Monday to Saturday.

There is an accessible rear entrance off Crescent Way.
