Book Club Rosamund De La Hay & Bill De La Hey
Rosamund de la Hey was formerly children’s marketing director at Bloomsbury Publishing where she worked from 1994-2007 and was fortunate to work on the Harry Potter series from the very beginning.
Bill de la Hey worked as a freelance photographer in London from 1992-2004, working for publications ranging from The Telegraph to Car Magazine.
Rosamund was brought up in Scotland and returned with her family in 2003 to live in the Borders. On moving north, Bill retrained as a chef, and together they opened The Mainstreet Trading Company in June 2008. Originally a bookshop & café, the shop was extended in 2012 to create a deli and homeware department. Mainstreet has won various awards over the years, most recently Britain’s Best Small Shop 2018.
