'There is something about radical bookshops, especially long-established ones like October Books. They have a special place in the hearts of local people'

October Books, a radical bookshop co-op in Southampton, plans to turn a former bank building into a community hub.

On 6 August the co-op became the legal freehold owner of the former NatWest branch at 189 Portswood Road. The co-op raised £487,800 through a combination of loan stock, crowd funding, personal loans and gifts, and a loan from Co-operative & Community Finance.
