SIDDLESHAM MAZE GARDEN

Sunday August 4th, four CHINDI authors attended the Maze Garden open day, which only takes place once a year for charity.

Our book stand, which was kindly organised by mystery thriller writer, Isabella Muir, was a lovely way to spend an afternoon alongside authors Lynne Healey, Gunvor Johannson and Helen Christmas. With a range of books on sale for children and adults, they succeeded in raising £65 for the garden charity Perennial – Gardeners’ Royal Benevolent Society.

MANY CONGRATULATIONS TO NOAH!

Noah is the delighted winner of the Maze Garden ‘Guess the weight’ competition, winning a whole pile of books by Chindi authors – worth £65! Noah had to guess the weight of the Oxford Dictionary of English and he managed to come to within just one ounce of the exact weight.

For those of you longing to know the answer, the dictionary weighed:
3.062 kg or 6Lb 12oz

Thanks to everyone who entered the competition, which raised money for the Perennial gardening charity.

ARUNDEL FESTIVAL

Chindi will be participating in Arundel Festival again this year from August 18th – 28th 2019.

Once again and for the 4th year running, a group of CHINDI authors will be running a book stall at Arundel Festival, this summer and hope to raise hundreds of pounds for Cancer Research. Signed books are a special and unique gift, so please come along and support them.
