I am so excited as my first e-book had been published through KBP Amazon earlier than anticipated. The cover is pictured on the left.
NB The price in UK pounds is just over £3 which can fluctuate as it's dependant on how well the dollar is doing.
On the Amazon US website it is shown as 4.99$ at present.

|LOCAL LISTING |
There are so many buildings in Henleaze worthy of nomination for a local listing by their quality, style or historical importance.
Please join in this initiative as soon as possible!
What is the local list you may well ask?
Henleaze does not have ANY buildings on the LOCAL LIST at present!
I hope by encouraging local residents and lovers of Henleaze
A BLUE diamond example for a nominated local listing in the Community Layer of Know Your Place in a nearby suburb is the WWII Barrack Hut submitted by Kingsweston Action Group.

"We had a brilliant weekend." said Hazel who was able to sell several paintings as well as quite a number of her prints and cards.
| HERITAGE TRAILS |
Some exciting walks around Henleaze!
Some of the email feedback received to date.
20 May 2013
We've spent the last three Sunday afternoons doing one each of the Henleaze Heritage Trails, and we'd just like to thank you.
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, learnt a lot about the area, and had some healthy exercise as well!
A job well done, thanks again.
Regards Maggie & Simon

HENLEAZE JUNIOR SCHOOL - 1950s
Neville Acland has drawn sketch plan of the Junior and Infant school as he remember it
Details to follow in the forthcoming HJS e-book
The cowshed was a large wooden building painted black. For most of the time it was generally empty, but during my final year at the junior school (1956-7) the (new) craft teacher, Mr. Stokes arranged for a lorry load of thin veneer and other light craft material to be stored in the cowshed.
A friend and I spent two weekends sorting and repacking this material to make it easily accessible to all. The outcome was that the Headmaster, Mr. Charles commended us both for the very useful work undertaken. Normally I was in his ‘bad books.’
