Our next events

20. Apr, 2017


Yes, it hardly seems possible but on 20th April, Oxhey Community Book Swap will be one year old. To celebrate we will be christening our brand new bookcase with a selection of 'New In' books. This was purchased partly by a grant from St Matthew's PCC and partly by a raffle and craft sales over the past few weeks. Our party will launch at 2.00pm as usual and there will be free birthday cake and Bucks Fizz to celebrate.

Birthday plus 1 and we hope to have something special for this one too. Watch this space.

What is Book Swap

Oxhey Community Bookswap meets on the third Thursday of every month between 2.00pm and 4.00pm in St Matthew's Church Hall, Eastbury Road, Oxhey WD19 4ST.


  • Bring along any books that you have read. For each book you bring you will be given a ticket which will allow you to
  • Take a book.  You can choose as many books as you like. However, you will need a ticket for each one you want to take away free of charge. If you don't have a book to swap you can buy tickets for just 50p each.
  • Refreshments are available - tea, coffee, squash and homemade cake. Relax with friends and enjoy a friendly afternoon.

St Matthew's Craft Club

St Matthew's Craft Club used to meet on the 3rd Thursday evening of every month but, since July 2016, it has been very successfully included in with Book Swap.  Any craft work such as knitting, crochet, embroidery etc - things you can do while you sit round a table with a drink and chat.
