Great day in Queen Charlton

What a wonderful day at Queen Charlton Village Fete. I met many people of all sorts – some were clearly avid readers, others told me they hadn’t read a book in 25 years! A lot of interest in The Kicking Tree and some copies sold too. (Managed to give £28 to the fete fund!) Thanks to the fete organizers for their kind invitation to be part of the proceedings. The weather, by the way, was magnificent.


My next outing with The Kicking Tree will be to Middleton, Leeds. St.Cross Parish Room (LS10 4HT) where we are putting on a Pie and Pea Supper. This is on Thursday, 19th June at 7.30 pm.

I regret I did not look up the times and dates of the England matches properly and we are clashing with England v Uruguay! What a debacle for an England fan! However, it might be somewhere especially good for those trying to escape wall-to-wall football. And a way of avoiding the anguish as we play well and still …   I shall no more. I am old enough to remember July 1966! (These days we think it is all over before we’ve begun!)
