TWO local authors have put pen to paper to produce new publications.
Vet Russell Lyon has written “Vet for Hire” while historian Trevor Bevis has produced “Cromwell, Lord of the Fens”.
Former March man Russell has written about some of the many years he has spent as a vet in the UK and abroad giving a fascinating insight into both the behaviour of a variety of animals and their owners.
In his book he explains how he spent most of his veterinary career as a partner then sole owner of a mixed practice.
Many people in March will remember Russell initially with the March firm of Noble, Jackson and Lyon.
Russell admits in the book how he prefers being out on call or in an operating theatre than dealing with the business aspect of owning a practice.
His book costs £9.99 and has been published by The Good Life Press Ltd.
The latest booklet by March man Mr Bevis compliments a selection of his local history titles covering many aspects of the Fens and coincides with the 350th anniversary of Oliver Cromwell’s death.
Under Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell’s leadership, the country was ushered into the modern age.
A resident of the Fens, Cromwell raised the country to a pinnacle of respect and disciplined outlook and introduced the constitutional monarchy.
In Mr Bevis’s opinion, the greatest men that England ever produced were Oliver Cromwell and Winston Churchill.
Copies of the booklet cost £3 and are available from Countryview in Dartford Road, March and other Fenland outlets.
