Pop into The Petersfield Bookshop in Lavant Street & you may find more than its huge collection of books.

Our roving reporter Jo Gray came across a cozy gathering of knitters tucked away amongst the burgeoning bookshelves & stopped by for a natter with the knitters.

She also meets shop owner John Westwood who talks about a passion for books, opening the doors to the local community & more.
