With great sadness, today we report the loss of Peter Hebden, former SPCK bookseller and the driving force behind the relaunch of Leicester’s former SPCK Bookshop as Christian Resources in November 2007.
I understand that Peter’s death, during the morning of Monday 9th November, followed a short illness, but have no further details at this stage.
We take this opportunity to offer deepest condolences and sympathy to Peter’s family, friends and colleagues.
Melanie Carroll, a former colleague and now owner of Unicorn Tree Books, Lincoln, writes:
Peter was a committed Christian and bookseller and invested much of himself into the Leicester Shop.
He had a good sense of humour, though on the dry side and will be surely missed by those who knew him and worked with him.
