" Waverton Not Only Reads....But It Writes!" ( And It Does Fun Concerts Too!!)

A good time was had by all in Waverton Village Hall last Saturday!

Waverton is a popular village near Chester....
and now firmly on the map of the writing world, principally due to its celebrated Good Read Award.
( SEE: for plenty more details)

WGR was instigated 10 years ago by enterprising trio: Gwen Goodhew, Wendy Smedley and Carol Archer....hence the Anniversary bash last week.

ORIGINALLY 18 Readers read a clutch of debut novels .....NOW this group has greatly that each year, literature-loving Wavertonians gorge books, eventually choosing an overall favourite new novel .
Winners have included: " The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-time", " A Short History Of Tractors In Ukranian" , " Boy A", " Salmon Fishing In The Yemen"........a vast variety of characters and plots and writing styles....

AND to celebrate this decade, Wendy, Gwen and Carol produced an anthology of writing by local people.......short stories, poems, memories, pictures....lots to enjoy. It's all in " Waverton Writes" which in itself is a collection worth celebating.

AND what were we doing in the Village Hall?...
WGR were launching this great little book....and we were also enjoying a village concert...a massive variety of acts....singers, musicians and actors.....who gave its audience a very jolly evening indeed!
