Colin Ward Memorial/Celebration

Five Leaves, the publisher of many of Colin's books have just circulated first details of the celebration/ memorial for Colin:

"On Saturday July 10th there will be a grand celebration/memorial meeting for Colin running from 2.00pm -5.00 pm at Conway Hall in London. Ken Worpole is officiating. The event is free and all are welcome."

The event will include several speakers and music. Appropriately, given it was Colin, there will be displays of his past work, first editions and the like, as well as a large bookstall. Five Leaves is also rushing through a new edition of Goodnight Campers! A history of the British holiday camp (co-written with Dennis Hardy, one of the speakers) which had been planned before Colin died.
