Elizabeth Yeoman’s new book of poetry More Than Words was launched on Friday evening, 29th August, to a crowd of more than three hundred in south Shropshire, at Chelmarsh Sports and Social Club. The event was a tribute to Elizabeth’s bravery in attending despite her serious illness. Steve Edwards spoke a few words at the opening and has special words of praise for the makers of a triumphant Victoria sponge cake. A bitter-sweet moment for all involved and a special achievement for a remarkable Shropshire figure. Nearly all the books taken to the event were sold.
