CAN I HAVE MY
BOOK BACK, PLEASE?
Brian Smith, is asking anyone who bought his first book of poetry, "From
Down Sands Lane to Cuckoo Bridge" if they would like to sell it back to
him for the original purchase price of £5.
The poetry book, the first of two, sold out completely a couple of years ago.
Since then Mr. Smith produced a second book of poetry, and it was the
production of this second book, "From Packs Meadow to Pear Tree
Corner", that led to a renewed interest in the first.
So Brian is trying to buy back clean copies of the book to supply to waiting
Due to high printing costs for small runs of books it would not be viable for
Brian to print extra books. The proceeds from the profit obtained from both
books was donated to Badsey School and Badsey Church.
SPRING - IN AND AROUND, BADSEY
