An update

To date "QPR - The Old Days" has raised £1720 (with Gift Aid - £2150). An article should be appearing in the Hammersmith area press this week so may hopefully boost sales a bit more. I still have plenty of copies immediately available and can dispatch within 24 hours of receiving your order so it is...

Congratulations, Hoggy. May I ask you how long it took to research and write your book? And what kind of sources did you use? (British Library, etc) I'm interested because I'm planning to do the same when I've got a suitable subject. :wink: Either that or I'll write a sci-fi novel, Queens Park Rang...

Nice one Hoggy. Choose the Man United game because it'll make Cait jealous. ;-) Apart from the fact that I have a commitment on the day of the Manyoo game so can't get there, I would not want to make a lady jealous, especially one who lives just up the road to me. Am considering Fool 'em, Arsenal o...

A visit to Loftus Road

Been to L.R. this morning to meet Andy Evans and Fiona Hodgson. Presented the cheque for £1500 which was very well received. On arrival at reception I was met by Andy and Fiona and we had coffee. Was there an hour during which time Andy asked a lot of questions about how things were in the old days ...
