Isle of Wight Literary Festival

Felicity Fair Thompson talks about her book

THE KID ON SLAPTON BEACH – the story starts at Christmas in 1943 when three thousand people are forced to leave the coastal area. Harry, her young hero leaves his home in the village of Torcross at Slapton Sands with his mother and his little sister. Imagine – packing up, leaving everything you know and love behind, and not knowing why.

But Harry has left his most precious possession behind. And he goes back. And it’s just as Exercise Tiger is about to happen….

American President Harry Trueman once said: “The only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know.”

National Poetry Day on the beautiful Isle of Wight

This poem of mine appears on a brass plaque near the country bus stop overlooking…

BLEAK DOWN

Who called this Down, Bleak?
What eye berated
these grey green undulating fields,
the dips and falls of country sweeping out?
Trail the Yar river springing
near the parish church in Niton.
Pass farms like Lavender, Eastview,
Appleford and Bridge
and see not bleak but bountiful.
Not the dark overhang of Bagwich Lane,
but bright gold God-given gorse and
blue sky. And at night,
not interrupting town light,
but stars.
