Last call for essays for Tis Magic - Our Memories of Catweazle! Deadline is 15th July 2019. If you've offered to write something for it, please drop me an email to the address at the bottom of the image to let me know how you're getting on, and when you expect to deliver. If you'd like to write but haven't let me know, please let me know asap, but please be aware that the deadline is a final one.
Nearly there!!! Mayhap it will see print this very summer!
Yes please help with this project it's about YOU and your memories and we all want to hear them!!
We have over 1500 members, true I doubt they will all be looking on here very sadly, but those who have please do send your little bit - it only means you recalling your thoughts about Catweazle, or Geoffrey, Kip etc etc and a simple email to Alan. You don't have to be an Enid Blyton or Shakespeare so don't worry about your grammar, spelling or anything like that just jot it down and send it off. And remember Alan is doing this for the club and it's future not for himself. I for one am looking forward to reading what fans remember and think. Thanks Alan xx
A lovely bit of news regarding the Catweazle book - Richard Carpenter's daughter, Harriet Whitehouse, has kindly written us a foreword! It's thrilling to have a member of the Carpenter family involved.

That's brilliant news Alan....the contributions by Harriet and Venetia will make it even more special......can't wait to get my hands on a copy. As you might recall I've been involved with a book project of my own for well over two decades, and which will finally see the light of day later this year.....so I fully understand and appreciate the time and effort that you've put into collating and producing this collection of Weazlers memories ! Well done !!
The book is sounding marvellous Alan, you are doing a fabulous job. Isn't a pity that more of our own members didn't join in. Those who did - very well done and thank you for your time and effort. Not too many people get their names published!!! lol
However 40 participants is a great number to have recorded so very well done to you and all those like Pertie who I know contributed other stuff too.
The take-up from fan club members was good but not enough to fill a book, so I sent out invites on a wider basis and as a result I think the book has ended up (through luck rather than clever planning on my part) with a wider scope as a consequence. And who knows, they might well join the club...
Yes, I appreciate that you had to go further afield and I am glad you did because you did manage to get quite a few people in the end which is terrific. Well you can't say that they don't know the club exists now, so fingers crossed. x
