Well the time had finally arrived that Bookworm had expanded so much that it needed a new home! So a well executed transfer whilst we were here saw their move, helped by a generous benefactor, to a pretty red house in the Panjim suburb of Taleigao!
The new space is amazing with a big open area downstairs for the younger children to choose and read that perfect book, and upstairs a teenage ‘den’ has been created (with the necessary lounging bed!) with more demanding reading material. There is also a new creative arts space with an airy balcony over-looking the paddy fields.
So plans are being evolved for book discussions (both for kids and adults), craft classes, an adult needlecraft group and a whole raft of pre-school learning groups and literacy classes that Elaine and her team are keen to develop. There’s even enough capacity to let out space to tutors to create a small income stream.
