194 Radio City: The Heart of Liverpool

Location: Denbighshire, United Kingdom

After deciding to resign from the Civil Service after 25 years, I am now free to pursue my dream of writing. My first book '194 Radio City - The Heart of Liverpool' was published through Lulu in April 2006, and is available from good bookshops and internet suppliers. If you have difficulty getting a copy, please contact me.

The Polo Express

Tomorrow morning, at 5.30am, husband Tom and his friend Scott will be leaving to go on the Calais to Casablanca rally in aid of Cancer Research UK. They will be doing the trip in a £100 banger, which will be scrapped at the end of the trip in a week's time.

This is a very worthwhile cause. As some of you will know, my best friend Sharron died just over a year ago of cancer, aged 43. She was an integral part of my Radio City book, both in simply being there with me throughout the 1970s and early 1980s (and beyond), and by providing fantastic memories that I'd forgotten.

Tragically, so many of the great Radio City names over the years have succumbed to cancer - Dave Eastwood, Roger Blyth, Joe Butler, Ron Davies... Please, if you are able, take this opportunity to donate to this very worthy cause.

You can follow their progress by clicking on the Team Polo Express link to the left (Tom's blog, which he will be updating during his trip) and you can donate on-line through www.justgiving.com/poloexpress.

Good luck lads!
