David Brodie supporting the Nepalese charity Mountain People

David Brodie, a member of the Creative Writing Group, has just published his latest novel and all proceeds from the book will go to the Nepalese charity Mountain People (, which aims to help the people of Nepal help themselves.

The novel is called June The Twenty Fourth and can best be described as an adventurous biography that follows the lives and loves of two boys as they experience a number of events, from birth to maturity. These events, some might say fantastical, are initiated by an unknown mentor.

Throughout the boys’ lives, their places in family, society and personal development are contrasted, for no two people walk in the same shoes forever.

This is a work of fiction, but much of what you read is so realistic that you are bound to be left with the question –  did this really happen?

Dennis Hotten is walking 26 miles for the Alzheimer's Society

On the 5th of June in London, I will be walking 26 miles for Alzheimer's and in memory of my dear wife Jenny.

Some of you may know Jenny or me, or both of us.  I have lived in St Peter for about 40 years and Jenny a bit less than that.

If you can or would like to support my endeavours please contact me via email

I have attached an article which I wrote for Alzheimer's and which has appeared in a little known magazine.

Please pass on my message to any friends or family as Alzheimer's affects so many people.

Thank you for listening
