2pm Meet Local Author Stephanie Cross

Stephanie will be discussing her debut novel, the romantic comedy “When Loves Meets Lust” and how she became an author.

There's always two sides to a story, even a love story that contains disastrous dates, misunderstandings, Spaghetti Bolognese and an encounter with 'Slutty Susan'. Ruby is desperate to find love, so much so that she's been eyeing up the local one-eyed postman as a potential match. However, the call of 'Down Under' is beckoning and she feels that her luck in life and love might change. Ryan on the other hand doesn't do love, it's a word that means very little to him. He enjoys making the most of the local 'talent' in Sydney and feels satisfied with his bachelor and luxurious lifestyle he leads. That is, until he meets Ruby…

"It's like Fifty Shades meets Coronation Street"

Stephanie will be signing copies of her book

Matthew Bourne’s vivid story telling has never been more heart-stopping and touching, and will take the audience into the heart of Prokofiev’s magnificent score.

2.30pm November Meeting – at Knodishall Village Hall, School Road, IP17 1UD

"Summerhill - That Dreadful School - Memories of Leiston and Summerhill School” - a talk by Zoё Readhead

The November meeting of the Alde Valley Suffolk Family History Group will be a talk by Zoё Readhead, the current Principal of Summerhill school. Summerhill was founded by A.S Neill in Germany in 1921 and arrived in Leiston in 1927, taking up residence in “Newhaven", the house that Richard Garrett built for his family. Although controversial, Leiston and Summerhill have a long relationship and through Summerhill the name of Leiston has become known world-wide.

Everyone is welcome; admission costs £1 for members and £3 for non-members, including coffee/tea and biscuits.

This is the first time the Family History Group has met at Knodishall Village Hall. We look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be a most interesting afternoon in the hands of another entertaining speaker.
