THURROCK Writers Circle Chairman Joy Ridgewell welcomed Patricia Pound to the meeting. A published author, Patricia’s first book was of the old Romford Brewery.
She was asked to write a book on all the stories she had gathered from the people that worked there as they reminisced as she was working as a welfare officer at the brewery.
This was a success and she then followed this with a history of Romford itself.
Then came an autobiography of an elderly lady form the Fanshaw family a well known name in Romford. Patricia is now writing a novel.
Her talk was inspiring and much enjoyed by the members.
On 13th November the TWC will be attending the Chadwell Forum Meeting at Herring School to show their work and with a view to selling their anthology.
Next meeting is at The Hugh Delargy Close Defoe Parade Chadwell St Mary RM 16 4DB on 27th November 7-30pm to 9-30pm.
