Events

 

 

Saturday and Sunday 5th and 6th August. West Somerset Railway Steam Rally. A really good day out. Davey, the tractor, will be available  for children to sit on. Also train rides and lots to see.

 

The three story books will be available for purchase on the stand. Look for the banner.

Please note children can sit on Davey, but only  if supervised by ab accompanying adult.  Davey will be immobilized and wheels chocked. The starter will be disconnected.

 

The weather forecast is favorable, mostly sunshine with small risk of a shower.

A great day out for school holidays.

 

 

 

Reader Feedback

Hi Alan,
           Just a thankyou note for all your work in sending the books (to Australia) etc. They arrived a couple of weeks ago though haven’t had a chance to read them to all the grand kids yet. More inside time when the weather gets colder. If you ever bring out more Davey books please let me know. I’ll always be  David Brown fan for sure.
Thanks again for your help, Cheers, David J.

 

"Davey to the Rescue"

I like this story even more than Waking up Davey. The expressions on the tractors are so convincing.

Lots to see in the illustrations.

 Thankyou2

Love of the West Country and Somerset and North Devon particularly.

A talented local artist with the ability to bring wildlife to reality with beautiful paintings so true to life. See her work at www.maryoldham.co.uk . You will be impressed. I persuaded Mary to step out of her comfort zone and do the hand drawn illustrations of Davey. She will not admit it but she has extended her comfort zone, the illustrations create the character and are evocative too. She has agreed to illustrate further stories.
Mary and her husband Mick have recently retired from Streamways Nursery business and now run a stables and livery, fortunately nearby.
