Books about Banstead
I was a pupil at Aberdour School from 1933 to 1937. The Ibis Book shop was a joy. It had all the Just William Books and a very sympathetic owner. On a visit to England in 2010 I visited it. Nothing had changed. Now, at least the name is for all to see.

I was a frequent visitor to the Ibis as a child during the 60s and 70s. I distinctly remember its' cosy and welcome feel. It will be missed. There are so few shops that I recognise now from my childhood in Banstead. Now there is one less. Very sad.
