Uckfield Lions operate a pre-loved Bookshop which helps to raise funds towards the Lions work in and around the Uckfield area.

It is conveniently located in Uckfield town centre just off the High Street in Olives Yard. This is the small road opposite NatWest bank next to TN22 furniture shop. Look out for the signs on the right.

Location of Bookshop

The Bookshop is open between 10am and 4pm on Tuesday to Saturdays.

Covid precautions are in place with only two people allowed in the shop at one time & payments are by card or the correct cash payments. No change will be given. A traffic light entry system is now operating at the shop. The NHS QR Test & Trace code is now displayed in the window.


Book donations at the shop are limited to one or two boxes or bags per person. Larger donations or collections can be arranged by contacting bookshop@uckfield-lions.org.uk  or phone 760004. Our collection boxes will reopen in May.


The shop stocks all types of books, including fiction, biographies, reference, dictionaries, gardening, cookery & many more. There is also a good selection of talking books & jigsaws. Most of the books are priced at £1.20 and all have been kindly donated. Books are sorted into categories which include General Fiction, Suspense/Crime, History, Classics, Hobbies, Cookery, Gardening, Biographies & more. The books in most categories are arranged alphabetically, making it easy to find your favourite author. There is also a “specials display” containing specialist or unusual books. Book tokens are available which make an ideal birthday or Christmas gift. There is also an area of rare & collectable books for sale & we also sell these on Ebay.

We regret that we are unable to accept video tapes, music cassettes, magazines or  DVDs & CDs.

Donations of books & Jigsaws can be delivered direct to the shop with parking available to unload.

Uckfield Lions opened their bookshop in April 2011. Since that date the money raised through the shop has increased month on month. All money raised over & above direct operating costs, is donated to good causes, mostly local. See the link to the How We Spend Your Money page on the home page. The shop is staffed entirely by volunteers, both Lion Members & non-Lion helpers.
