A NEW poetry collection has been penned by a Silsden man.

Red Brick Wall and other Northern Poems is the latest work by writer, poet and broadcaster David Driver.

He says: "The collection is a mixture of memories and people whilst growing-up and in modern times."

It is available via Amazon and from Silsden and Settle libraries.

And David is running free poetry workshops on Saturday, February 5, and on March 5, which are aimed at children aged between five and eight.

The sessions will link-in with his ABC Poetry book, which he published last year.

"The book allows children not only to learn the alphabet but also to enjoy rhymes, words and a little poetry," says David.

Workshop places can be booked via David – email thegingerliciouscompany@gmail.com or call 07790 574731 – or through Silsden Library in Kirkgate.
