November talks coming up...

Been busy preparing talks relating to two of our books. Well, to be truthful, one of the talks would have been given in March 2020 but for lockdown.



On Tuesday, 2 November 2021, we are giving our talk on visiting Burma in 2018, From Woodfalls to Rangoon, when we were able to walk in the footsteps of David Green (my husband Anthony’s father) who served in the Burma Campaign from 1942 to 1946. The invitation to speak came from Redlynch Historical Society and the talk begins at 7.30pm at Morgan’s Vale & Woodfalls Village Hall, The Ridge, Redlynch. £3.00 on the door for non-members.

It is an emotional journey especially as Remembrance Sunday (14 November) approaches and will be illustrated with family archive photographs, enjoying the peace of Woodfalls on the Wiltshire/Hampshire border, to the shocking contrast of surviving the swamps and jungles of India, Nagaland and Burma along with photos from our trip in 2018.

When we returned in February 2018, we put together an account of our own journey and contrasted it with the record of David’s experiences. Copies of The Road to Rangoon will be available on the night…



And here we are with fingers crossed and looking forward to finally presenting the tale of the making of Chris Charman’s wonderful memoir In the Spirit of Godshill and a fascinating insight into the family’s history. We’re updating it, of course, as since then another book, Cycling Tales, has been produced, and there has been an extraordinary discovery relating to Chris’s father and his unusual links with the strange world of elementals…. It’ll be in the Godshill Village Hall on Sunday, 7 November 2021, a Godshill Players' Sunday tea time event. Please arrive at 2.00pm for 2.30pm. No ticket is required, just a donation on the day and please tell Anne Fisher (01725 512418) or Peter Stammers (07496 282897) if you'd like to come.
