A big thank you to Revd Christine French who tonight gave us a cheque from the proceeds of her book ‘Diary of a Vicarage Cat’ which is still selling! £1,100 is a fantastic sum of money and reflects the popularity of Florence’s monthly column in the paper. Florence is deaf but doesn’t let her disability hold her back – her stories in and around Kirk Hallam All Saints Church are enjoyed by many people who find inspiration from her jottings. The book, printed by local company Moorleys, is available from our office, 1 Bath Street for £5. Photo 1 shows editor Bob Attewell, Revd Christine French, husband Lester and Florence with the cheque. Photo 2 shows Florence in her basket with her book.
