I was looking at this photograph, taken many years ago, of two bunches of Mothering Sunday flowers sent by two of my sons.

What if I could interest friends in St Nicholas’ Church, my church in Arundel, in letting me have short pieces on the thoughts and life-enriching memories they would like to share with others? Slowly, in them came, from church friends, as well as from friends far and wide, and family members. The result is an amazing collection of contributions, some prose, some poems, with colour and black-and-white illustrations to accompany them.

Price £5, it is on sale in St Nicholas’ parish office, £1 going to The Friends of St Nicholas’ for the first 100 copies sold. (We’ve sold 85 no – a display and sale will be held at the Friends’ GM on 24 May- we need to sell fifteen more so that we can hand over the promised £100.00. Would you like to buy one?) It is also on sale at The Book Ferret bookshop and Gaskyns Café, both in Arundel, or on the SMH website adding £1.00 for UK p&p.

This is no ordinary book, and I am especially proud of it.
