A COLLECTION of poetry and prose by authors from across the county has been compiled by a writers group from Northwich.
Vale Royal Writers’ Group, based in Sandiway, has released its first anthology, entitled The Cheshire Collection.
The book features several examples of poetry and prose written by group members and was launched at the Salt Museum, Northwich, on Friday with proceeds for the charity GOES (Gambian Occasional Emergency Support).
All of the writers come from Cheshire and many of them have written pieces that draw on aspects of life in the county, including pieces on Winsford’s Rock Salt Mines, Macclesfield Forest and countryside walks.
Chairman Bob Barker said: “The poems and stories in The Cheshire Collection are as diverse and varied as the backgrounds of our members.”
The writer’s group meets in Sandiway on the first Monday of every month.
The Cheshire Collection will be on sale from Friday, December 7, priced at £5. To order a copy, call 01925 264926.
