NIGHT THINGS ON
NIGHT THINGS ON is not just the story of my long, action-packed, colourful life. It also documents significant happenings, including the war-outbreak upheaval in 1939. My father lost his lucrative Manchester job, forcing us to leave a luxurious house in Crumpsall for a small village cottage in Flintshire, North Wales.
After school in Wrexham and Chester, a thorough grounding in journalism at the CHESTER CHRONICLE, followed by becoming the first Press and PR Officer of Chester Zoo (self-appointed!), and travels through the UK and abroad, I eventually settled down in Arundel.
There, I became involved in two major Campaigns: One, to have removed the gate, illegally erected across the car park of Caen Stone Court, where I live; the other, to restore the great Bishop George Bell of Chichester to his rightful place in history (at least, we have succeeded in that one!).
Towards the end of the book, I wrote of the traumatic events which occurred during 2021 and 2022, especially as they affected me and those round me.
NIGHT THINGS ON has been beautifully presented and printed by St Richard’s Press, Chichester – wonderful colleagues to work with! It is in paperback, but on best art paper, with a substantial cover. It can be bought from Gardners Books (I have already received orders from them) OR direct from my website here.
