NEW photos?   That's sold it to me then...   I shall order from the FF Remembered website, as it would seem that some of us have had problems with Amazon?

Definitely order from the FF Remembered site.   You'll get much better service and way faster delivery.  I've had nothing but issues with Amazon UK.  Now they say my valid credit card isn't valid!  So bye-bye order!!! >101<

Just received various emails to confirm that it's on its way.  So, as we rapidly approach the actual date of the 40th anniversary...

It's arrived!!!!   >92<

Amazing!  I'll admit that I haven't read it yet, flicked through it, but it looks brilliant.  Hope I'm not spoiling it for anyone by saying it's printed on green paper!  It's an oversized or large format paperback, so well worth the price.  From the casual glance, I'd say that it's full of plenty of behind the scenes info, andecdotes and photos.  Speaking of the photos, mostly all in colour!, personally my favourites are the ones on pages 83 and 86 - although my suspicion is that most of you ladies out there will favour (savour?) the one on page 84....

Anyway, congratulations to everyone concerned, not only for producing what appears to be an amazing book, but also on the quickness of dispatch!  If it wasn't so sunny out there, I'd stay at home and read it now!!!!

I can recomend it.

Greetings from Dave in Yorkshire. >44<

I now have a copy of Follyfoot Remembered and am thoroughly enjoying the read. What a fascinating story has been told by Jane Royston, with further input from Ray Knight. Well done to you both. So many mysteries about the programme are revealed in the new book and the photos throughout are amazing (p.83 is a gem for the follyfellas) >27<. Jane’s Hollin Hall and horses dream of the 1970s became reality for her and went on to play such a memorable part of our own lives.

This year has seen me very busy and I have missed my regular chats on this forum. By the end of August I am hoping to be able to return here and add to the Follyfoot banter. Off to Norfolk soon. Until August, with best wishes to all, Dave.

A toast to the authors of the new book: “To Jane and Ray for Follyfoot Remembered” >20<

Dave, pleased to hear from you again  >11<

For the record, I am probably one of the very few who has not got the book as yet!  ::) But I definately look forward to having a copy... eventually!  :)

Great to hear from you again, Dave!

I was getting worried that Phyllis Wetherby had captured you and was keeping you locked up in a shed full of spiders with no internet access!
