A thriving and welcoming group

Last Friday, 4 January, I had the privilege of giving my ‘Latecomer Novelist’ talk to the Redhill and Reigate U3A group at Park Church in Reigate.  I can’t remember feeling more at home among a group of people I hade never met before. I was welcomed by Lynne, who showed me where to park and even help me carry my books into the hall. Mike, the president, also made me welcomed and I spoke, before and after my talk to a number of members about writing and getting published.

The talk seemed to go down well and my sincere thanks are due to Elizabeth who organised my visit, Mike and Lynne and all other members present who listened so patiently and, of course, all those who bought copies of my novels. So, as a result of my visit, I’ll be donating £16 to the Rotary Charity, ‘End Polio Now’ which the Bill and Linda Gates Foundation will make up to £48 in the fight to eradicate polio
