David and his devoted wife Christina, stepped aboard their first classical hire fleet cabin cruiser 'Songster' from 'George Smith of Wroxham' back in 1969. Their mystical steps into pure paradise, meandering about every nook and cranny about the winding rivers, a place steeped in history, where tranquillity and beauty are beyond the wildest imagination, was to be the start of alluring visits to this beautiful county, which they are now fortunate enough to call their home.
David decided that there is no better value in life, than recapturing the golden era of time gone by of his magical visits to the Broads, by writing a series of booklets, largely based upon his family exploits. Following a surge of wide ranging interests of his passion, the first of Davids exclusive booklets is now available to purchase. Each booklet captures the essence of the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads in all its natural beauty. Covering different stories through a clever combination of fact and fiction, is what makes this very special new series of ‘Must Reads’ very collectable, in a unique fashion.
David hopes you will enjoy and share his passion, through reading his booklets, and in return of each booklet purchased, the donations to two very worthwhile causes are made.
Proceeds from the booklets are going to:
