Golf Croquet for Tournament Players
by Ian Burridge

Ian Burridge is an International golf croquet player and a previous winner of the English National Singles, English First Eight, Welsh Championship and New Zealand Doubles titles.

Golf Croquet for Tournament Players is a manual aimed at taking players through the development journey of a competitive player.

At every level of play sound decision making is a vital component in being successful and winning games. The book aims to ensure that the reader is armed with the necessary understanding to confidently make the right decision in whatever situation they face.

A series of Golden Rules set out the basics for those just beginning their journey, these are backed up with more detailed explanations as experience and understanding increases. Once the basics have been mastered the book advances into the more detailed elements of strategy that permeate the sport, as the standard of play increases, providing the reader with the insight they need to make the most of their own ability and to counteract their opponent’s

This is the book which will help you transition into comfortably playing in Golf Croquet tournaments, all the way up to A class. International player Ian Burridge has written a thorough and accomplished account of the tactics and strategy of the game. So sit comfortably, with your favourite beverage at hand, put your feet up, and get stuck in.

Players of all levels will benefit from the coverage of skill-sets and common tactical scenarios in the first two sections. Good players will find this a useful fine-tuning of ideas. Developing players will already be into study mode.

Following this the author offers his unique insights into the strategy of the game, on literally a hoop-by-hoop basis, and after this comes ‘Part 4: The Battle’. This is the meat of the book and these sections are not intended to be read in one sitting. Rather, they are a study guide to be returned to as your game develops. If you’ve ever been disturbed by how often you go two hoops down at the beginning of the game, or puzzled over how best to play hoop 5 against a strong hitter, then you will be dipping into those sections straight away!

The highlight for me was the masterly account of how to counteract the various game strategies - the power players, the positional gurus, the irritating (for me) mid-paced clearers, jawsers and hoopers etc, etc. There’s a lifetime of tournament knowledge in this section alone.

I once heard the author comment to an opponent after a game “I had all the luck and you still won.” Ian has a generous spirit, and this book is the true gift of his knowledge. Buy it.

The Greatest – The Times and Life of Beryl Burton
William Fotheringham

Beryl Burton overtakes Mike McNamara to clinch victory in the 12-hour race at Otley, Yorkshire. When she finishes the marathon event after 277 miles, Burton has beaten Britain’s leading male time triallist and achieved something unheard of: she has taken a men’s endurance record outright. The moment enters cycling folklore because of Burton's gesture as she overhauls ‘Mac’: unsure what to do or say, she offers him a liquorice allsort from her pocket.

Burton was a seven-times world champion and multiple national champion, and this was the greatest feat in her 30-year career. The Otley ‘12’ should have been a groundbreaking moment in women’s sport, but along with the rest of Burton’s achievements, it has slipped into relative obscurity.

This new biography from best-selling writer William Fotheringham tells Burton’s story in full for the first time, from the brutal illness that left her bedridden as a teenager to her quarter century at the top of women’s cycling in the UK, and her premature death in 1996.

Liz Saunders was Assistant Professor of Anatomy on the Graduate Entry Medical course run by the University of Nottingham in Derby.
Anatomy is all about structures and relations, movement and protection, circulation and nerve supply. It is important that students understand the physicality of anatomy; to visualize what lies deep to the surface and to connect that knowledge with their patient’s symptoms and history of events. I have used illustrations throughout the book, with questions designed to include clinical relevance such that students can test their anatomical knowledge in preparation for clinical practice.

What is next for us
Nubia Assata

What Is Next For Us? Is in itself a question. Opening up a discourse on the future of black political activity, modern Pan-African pursuits and the relationship between the African continent and the global black diaspora.

Nubia answers a multitude of questions covering the urgency of psychological liberation, the erroneous attachment to Black Messianism and the importance of radical collectivism.

Following her debut book Silent Screams, Nubia stays true to her commitment to use her writings to mitigate the legacies of colonialism and slavery, but this time she focuses on the economic and socio-political legacies that ravage the global black community.

Ultimately bringing the reader to ask themselves the culminating question, what is next for us?

Nubia Assata is a young ,eighteen-year-old, up-and-coming author who integrates her intersecting activism for black consciousness and mental health through her work. She has used her experiences with mental health and racism, whilst being a young black woman in Britain as a springboard to open the conversation of what ‘Blackness’ means in 21st Century Britain and the world.


Khushi Dhutty
Nubia's words are empowering, raw, authentic – she leaves the readership with that one eponymous question – what is next for us? And poses the final balance on the weighing scales of the future – will we remain in comfortability, or will the Black Diaspora leave the slumber and launch a rekindling of that innate determination to debilitate the lies of white supremacy?

Dr Martin Glynn (April 2022)
Despite being young, Nubia displays a maturity of purpose in her writing, combined with an important ‘call to arms’ to anyone who believes in addressing important issues concerning blackness, politics and identity.

After losing everything, it was in absolute nothingness where he found himself.
At the end of all he held close, at the end of all he held dear, at the end of all he held tight;
that end now holds him.
And he became death. And he became vengeance. And he became ghost.
A twisted tale of revenge spanning decades, spanning genres and even spanning writing styles,

The Safari Games
by Julie Churchley

The animals are raring to go and ready to compete in their very own sporting contest.
Who will be racing on the track?
Who will be jumping from the diving board?
Who might make it onto the podium?
Join the spectacle that is The Safari Games. Have fun.
Meet the competitors, some with four legs, some with horns, some on wheels or a blade, some with wings.
At the end of the day, they all come away with so much more than a medal.
Julie started putting pen to paper following a career in nursing.
In addition to personally experiencing the joy of books, having worked within child development, she appreciates the many benefits they bring, including speech and language, imagination and also bonding between the child with their parent/carer when sharing storytime.
Julie has a real-life love of animals and currently 'lodges' with a cat and a rabbit.
(The frogs remain outside in the pond.)
She loves to travel, is a keen crafter and loves a night out at the theatre.
She hopes there will be more adventures for Zeus and his friends to follow.

The Life and Times of Jane Rashleigh

Jane Rashleigh lives a privileged existence as the daughter of the wealthy Jonathan Rashleigh. Wanting for nothing, she becomes the inseparable companion of her older brother Philip. They spend their days singing and dancing and entertaining their mother in her rooms. Jane expects nothing more from life than that one day she will marry and leave Menabilly for a new home with her husband.
When handsome, charming Ralph Willington appears in her life she falls hopelessly in love and cherishes the dream that he is the one who will carry her off to a life of wedded bliss. Her hopes are dashed in a way she does not at first understand but eventually accepts, opting instead to enjoy a life of cultural pleasures.
Jane’s story is divided between her home in rural Cornwall and the opera houses and salons of London during a period of musical and literary opulence.
When tragedy strikes and her world crumbles around her, she must find an inner strength to cope with what lies ahead
Joanne spent her childhood on a sheep and cattle farm in Tasmania, Australia. After marrying and raising a family in Tasmania she moved to Wales in 2003 and still lives there, close to the Herefordshire border. Always a keen historian, she became fascinated by her own family history and by the lives of her ancestors - some of whom she discovered to be very colourful indeed.
This led her to begin writing. Honora and Arthur - The Last Plantagenets is her first published book.
In her own words 'I am the end product of a melting pot ranging from convicts to Royalty. There are so many stories waiting to be told. I just hope I live long enough to do it.'
