Popular bookstore and cafe Bookmark has become an exciting new venture for Spalding businessman Jason Sutton.

Jason, owner of Charmed Interiors in Sheep Market, took over responsibility for the book business this week from Christine Hanson, Bookmark’s owner for the past 25 years.

Jason said: “Bookmark is a great business. I intend to keep the great selection and service that has brough it success in the past.”

Bookmark, in The Crescent, regularly hosts book-based events which have been known to bring author celebrities to Spalding.

The new owner is promising to deliver a brand new website so Bookmark’s customers can keep up to date with author visits and more.

“The events calendar is set to continue,” said Jason. “A new website will be online soon too, so people can find out what is on, and when.”

Christine has thanked her customers for all their loyalty and support.
