This morning I went online for my Twitter fix and noticed a post from a stationary shop of my childhood, Biddles in Guildford. Instantly I was plunged back into a series of happy memories. This shop undoubtedly helped me develop a love of stationary which has remained to this day, and a trip home to Guildford is never complete without a trip into Biddles.
Like many businesses, the COVID-19 situation has affected Biddles, but I was genuinely very sad that the business went into Administration earlier this year. Now there is a Crowdfounder project which is seeking to keep the business and save the jobs of the former staff members.
If you wish to donate to the project then you can do so HERE
