Local author, David Jackson has very kindly donated a copy of his latest, self-published book called ‘Jake and the Lad from the Manor’.

This story is a fictional tale of two boys who grew up in Sheffield and the surrounding area, and gives insights into living and working in a mining community.

Possibly not for the youngest of readers because of some of the naughty language, but a riveting read that’ll have you turning the pages wanting more, then laughing and crying with the heroes in the story.

We’ve found that it’s best to read this while wearing flares, listening to 70’s music!
