Bookshop will be sorely missed

Have your say

With the closure of Bookman’s Halt recently, Bohemia has lost one of the last of its truly independent shops.

Clive Linklater, the proprietor, had managed the business for 35 years providing outstanding service.

His repartee was appreciated by his regular customers.

Very often, his books were cheaper than those in charity shops.
