BOOK LAUNCH TO RECORD 'ALL THE KINGSLEY MEN'
A SPECIAL event has been planned to launch a new book documenting the bravery and sacrifice of villagers from Kingsley. All The Kingsley Men records the results of 18 months of research into the lives, service and fate of 29 villagers killed in the Great War. Martyn Hordern and Kenneth Unwin scoured village records, online resources and even travelled to northern France to visit war graves there in a bid to thoroughly record the lives and sacrifices of those who served. Their findings have been edited by Pat Nutt and eventually became a 250 page book, instead of the 40 page booklet originally envisioned. The launch event will be at Kingsley Village Hall on Sunday 23rd April from12.30pm with the formal opeing of the event at 1pm.

A PAIR of life-saving volunteers have been presented with a commendation by the Chief Officer of West Midlands Ambulance Service. June Jervis and Guy Collins were both presented with certificates by chief officer, Anthony Marsh at a glittering awards ceremony. The duo were recognised after managing to bring back a patient who had collapsed at work in November last year. June, from Oakamoor and Guy from Great Gate, are both volunteers with Churnet Valley First Responders and attended the awards event at the Copthorne Hotel in Brierely Hill.
The pair were presented with their commendations by Anthony Marsh, who told the gathered throng: “I am immensely proud of the work that you all do, often in very difficult circumstances, and I want to thank you all for making us the best ambulance service in the country.” June and Guy were recognised for their efforts after a call to attend a patient who had collapsed at work.
UTTOXETER swimming star, Adam Peaty was back in the water Tuesday 18th April as he defended his British title.

Adam took to the water again for the British Championships with a view to qualifying for the World Championships in Budapest in July.
Now training at Loughborough, Adam, 22, has decided against adding the 200m breast stroke to his schedule and instead is focussing on defending his 50m and 100m titles.

A Marston’s spokesman was unable to provide a comment before the Times and Echo went to press, but more information will be available for the next edition.
