big thank you to everyone who took part, over £300 has been raised for the C

hildren’s Hospice South West. A special mention must go to Ralph Hoyte author of ‘Something must be done about the humans’ and creator of the audio trail. This short walk around hidden Bridport brings to lif

e many of the author’s works, it’s well worth taking, I especially like the sound of the whales as you walk by the River Asker, a great contribution from Erich Hoyt author of the Encyclopedia of Whales, Dolphins and Porpoises, amongst many others. If you want to take the walk follow the link http://satsymph.co.uk/projects-and-events/bridport-book-fest


I would also like to thank Jenny Barrett, for the impromptu playing of the piano, which added a very unique atmosphere to the morning. Please check out the author’s profile of those who attended, I’m very grateful to their support and those customers who dared come in and buy from us. I will be arranging the second event in March, and taking bookings in the new year, please contact me if you would like to be put on the mailing list.
