  1. The Emporium in Grange over Sands specialises in vintage items such as : furniture, clothes, toys, household items, kitchen utensils, clocks and much more.

  7. On Saturday November 20th there will be a programme, memorabilia and collectors' fair between 10 .30 and 1.30 in the Red Vee Bar at the Totally Wicked Stadium in St Helens. Free entrance, free exit and everybody welcome.
  8. This month's issue of Forty20 includes an article titled "Stay Healthy Start Writing". It explains how writing a novel based on your own life can be an excellent way for you to look after your mental health. It describes how since starting in 1988 I have written six novels all set against a strong Rugby League background and how I have also produced three pages of advice on how any other rugby league fan can do something similar. If this interests you or maybe one of your older relatives or neighbours then E Mail me at wgeofflee@gmail.com and request "Geoff Lee's RL Guidelines" and I will send them to you. Also have a look at my web site at www.geofflee.net for more information about my Ashurst series.
  9. In the 17th March issue of the Evening Mail there was an article headed "Isolated people in South Cumbria urged to do this". It did not mention rugby league although it did show a photo of me wearing a Saints jersey and holding the Rugby League Challenge Cup. This indicates that there is plenty rugby league material in six novels I have written in a series that begins in 1962/63 during that terrible winter and runs up to 2008. It also stated that I have written three pages of general advice for any rugby league fan who might be interested in writing a novel based on his or her own life. If you would like me to send you them contact me at wgeofflee@gmail.com and ask for a copy of Geoff's (RL) Platform. I have also written a slightly different version for people who are not fans of the greatest game. This one is called Geoff (North Western) Platform. Please feel free to ask for both if you have relatives or friends or neighbours who could be interested.
  10. In the March 17th issue of the Evening Mail there was an article headed "People in Cumbria urged to do this" It did not mention any rugby league connection although there was a photo of me wearing a Saints jersey and holding the Rugby League Challenge Cup. This indicates that rugby league is well covered in the six novels I have written starting with "One Winter" which was set during the 1962/63 winter. It stated that I have also written three pages of general advice for anyone who would like to try writing a novel based on their own life and times. If you would like me to send you these three sheets just E Mail me at wgeofflee@gmail and ask for either Geoff's (RL} Platform (which highlights Rugby League) or a more general version titled Geoff's (North Western) Platform which might be more suitable for relatives or friends who are not fans of the greatest game.. Feel free to ask for both if you wish to.
  11. In yesterday's copy of the Evening Mail (March 17th) there was an article headed "Isolated people in South Cumbria urged to do this". It did not mention any rugby league connections although it did show a photograph of me wearing a Saints jersey and holding the Rugby League Challenge Cup. This indicates that there is plenty rugby league in the six novels that I have written with the first one starting during that terrible winter of 1962/63. It stated that anyone wanting me to send them my three pages of advice on "how to write a novel/biography on your own life" to contact me at wgeofflee@gmail.com. The paper described these three sheets as "Geoff's North Western Platform". However I have also written a slightly different version aimed at more of a rugby league audience. This version is called "Geoff's RL Platform". Feel free to request both if you are both a Rugby League fan and also someone who has relatives or friends who are not but who may still be interested in doing something which can be very interesting and time consuming while you or they are self isolating.
