NEWSLETTER 1 - 30 SEPTEMBER 2020

 Dear all

"SPROTBROUGH: FROM RURAL ESTATE TO REAL ESTATE"

This is just to update everyone on the progress of our book.

The manuscript went off to the printers and, following two or three proofs is now in line for printing.  I have just been informed that it is likely to be with us during the week commencing

19 OCTOBER 2020.

As I am off to the DRI tomorrow morning for surgery and will then be self-isolating for 4 weeks, all the books will be delivered to:

John Walton, 'Stable View', Park Drive, Sprotbrough DN5 7LP. Tel: 01302 510001

For ease, John's home can be accessed through the gate on the left hand side of 'Park House', which is the old house on the right just inside the park next to the church.  Just walk through the gate, down the path and you will see a new house in front of you.

So that he knows how many copies you are calling for, you should pay in advance by one of the following methods shown in the preferred order:

1.  Bank Transfer:  The name on the bank account is Elizabeth Reeve.                                          The Bank Sort Code is: 54-10-03 and the Account No is 90406591.                                            Please ensure you put your name in the space for 'sender', so that I know who it is from.

For payments by Cheque or Cash:

2.  Cheques should be made payable to 'Elizabeth Reeve'. 

3.  Cash:  

Please place cheques or cash in an envelope with your name, address and contact details, ie phone number and email, written on the envelope with the number of copies you require and the amount of cash enclosed.

On receipt of your order and payment, John will be informed of how many copies you require and you will be able to collect.  Please telephone John first to arrange a convenient time.

NEWSLETTER - 7 SEPTEMBER 2020



Our project is now drawing to its close and I just wanted to thank everyone for their support and participation in something which I know we have all enjoyed and will look back on as a very worthwhile endeavour.  We may find it is possible to continue in the future when meetings are possible once more, but we will first need to find a useful format that everyone will be interested in following.  More of that in the future though.

For now, it was really good to see everyone again for the photoshoot and we were very pleased to be able to obtain 22 photographs of the 18 that turned up, and 4 others that we obtained by other means, to include in the book.

The book is now at the printers, though the relevant person is on holiday this week so I think we will have to await his return before we reach the next stage.  However, I am hopeful it will be ready to launch before the end of the month.  Fingers crossed anyway.

Just as a taster, the cover looks like this:

so I hope you like it and will enjoy reading what has been created from all the interviews and topics we discussed.  There are lots of photos too, so you might recognise a few people in them.

I think you can take it that the book will sell for £10 to all participants, though we will probably have to charge full price to others if we are to reclaim all that has been spent to produce it.  

I will write again when we have arranged a launch place, date and time.

So, until then, take care.


Liz
