CHARD readers still have a chance to pick up a Somerset author’s new book after his recent signing event.

Tony Arnold was at Chard Bookshop on May 11 to autograph copies of ‘Science for the Gardener’, and saw a great turnout from keen readers.

Stevie Kesham, from the bookshop, said: “Tony started at 11 and stayed until 2pm.

“It was a really dandy day with the weather being so lovely attracting people out.

“We do still have some copies of his books for those who didn’t manage to make it to the signing.”

Tony is a recently retired science teacher who lives in Somerset.
