Its out at last - seems like months since I finished this and in essence it was. Hyde Park - The People's Park is just lovely. Interestingly a number of friends and colleagues said, "it aint the peoples park, Victoria Park was in Tower Hamlets" - yet Grimsby has a People's Park too and there are others too. Yet in essence, ALL parks are people's parks, they belong to everybody. Hyde Park was the Royal Park that became the people's park.
So whats next? 20 years of HLF funding and restoration of amazing parks. Time to celebrate this with a new book - Book no 8 with stunning photographs and more. Writers block? Its been too long since I wrote and need to get back into it. Book No 9? Bandstands a Social History? As for double figures - thats the challenge. No writers block here and as for parks - they are all parks for the people.
PS please buy my books!!!
