The Golden Treasury's 15th birthday party

I’m exhausted! I’ve just spent three hours in The Golden Treasury, a great independent bookshop in Southfields, photographing the staff, children and their parents as they celebrated the bookshop’s 15th birthday.

It was a brilliant afternoon. The children had a great time, listening to stories, reading books, colouring in and getting all excited when Mr Nosey, Horrible Henry and The Gruffalo arrived. I got some great shots and chatted to staff and parents.

Independent bookshops are a dying breed, but they are important in their communities and are well worth supporting. The Golden Treasury is apparently London’s largest independent children's bookshop. To find out more, please visit their website:
