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 they came, and 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.
