Something popped up on Facebook today that made me happy. It’s not to often I can say that about Facebook, but this genuinely made me grin from ear to ear.

Some weeks ago, I published a request for help by Brian Stringer, who’s a noted local author and community activist. Brian had received requests to make audio versions of his books ‘The Clayhanger Kid‘ and ‘The Clayhanger Kid Two‘, and needed a little bit of help to get them recorded.

Blog reader and contributor Dave Moore, himself a great local history geek, campaigner for Sandfields Pumping Station and all round top bloke stepped forward. It seems the two gents have been working together to make the audiobooks a reality.

Sometimes, very occasionally, this thing we participate in here can make a small difference. That makes me very happy indeed.

My best wishes to both Brian and Dave. Wonderful work.
