Meet the Author Felix Francis this Thursday…

Becoming Dick Francis by Felix Francis – A Talk by the Author at Middleton Cheney Library

Hornton’s resident crime fiction bestselling author, Felix Francis, presents Becoming Dick Francis at a talk at Middleton Cheney library this Thursday (June 21st) evening  – a rare chance to find out about how he took over his famous father’s writing role and preserved this global literary brand.

Felix has kindly agreed to do the talk to support the Middleton Cheney Library Supporters Group who are fighting hard, against the odds, to keep their library open. It’s a must for anyone who hasn’t heard Felix speak before.

Tickets are £7 to include a glass of wine and you can pay on the door. Felix will be signing and selling his books. The library is easy to find, right in the centre of Middleton Cheney by the crossroads, next to the school and with a large car park.

***To make life even easier, Chris and Steve Woodcock from Hornton will be going and have at least three spare seats in their car if anyone fancies joining them– tel. 670795.

Hornton History Event August 26th – 28th

Countdown to the Past – Week 1!

Traditional crafts and country skills come to life at our Hornton history event on the August Bank Holiday weekend – Saturday 26 to Monday 28 August. 

Limbering up in the wings we have a posse of Hornton honey-makers (showing off bee hive care and honey ‘extraction in action’), our resident nimble-fingered felt-making expert, a master woodworker whose joints are second to none and stone masons and fossils galore.
 
They will all be at The Way We Were, based at the Pavilion on Bell Street. We’re into the last month of preparations for the event, which will also include a village trail, Memory Lane vintage café, Living Memories magazine and a see-and-touch exhibition. Entrance is free and it’s open 12 noon to 5pm each day, Saturday to Monday inclusive.
 
There really will be something for all the family – and we’ll tell you more about the other star attractions over the next three weeks…so keep reading these Countdown emails!
 
Hope to see you there. There will be plenty of Hornton and Horley memorabilia involved!
