The Lighter Side of the Lockdown

The Lighter Side of the Lockdown is a collection of poems written by four friends, all self isolating during the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic and published by Paul Dickson Books who are members of All Things Norfolk.

Vee Pond was the first to start writing, to help lift her spirits during the lockdown. She posted her poems on Facebook, aiming to put a smile on the faces of her followers. Her poems inspired three of her friends, Linda Marie Augood, Kathryn Bryant and Carol Saunders to start writing as well.

The poems give a lighter view of living in the lockdown, as the writers overcome their domestic frustations and the day to day lockdown routine. But they also pay tribute to our front line workers who have kept the country going. The last poem in the booklet particularly pays tribute to our NHS heroes. There's also a poem about Captain, now Colonel Tom Moore and his fantastic NHS fundraising success.

Rebecca Osborne, who created the Captain Tom illustrations, also drew the illustrations for this booklet which consists of 56 pages

£3 from each purchase will be donated to the N&N Hospitals Charity in aid of ICU at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals Foundation Trust.

The Book can be purchased in the Paul Dickson Book Store in the All Things Norfolk Shop by clicking here
