As well as supplying various Womens Institutes with tea for 20 years and working with lots of them to do good things around the world like planting trees, we also have our own workplace WI – the Fondant Fancies.
Ladies from all around our business get together several times a year to meet, chat and do something interesting, whether that’s learning how to salsa or mastering the art of basic car maintenance!
Recently they had a visit from a Yorkshire bobby. And before you say it, no, they hadn’t been up to mischief (at least as far as we know). The bobby in question was Mike Pannett, local policeman turned author.
Following a turn on the BBC’s Country Cops, Mike’s written a collection of amusing tales from his time spent policing in North Yorkshire. We supported him on his tour of the nation’s bookshops earlier this year so he was more than happy to treat our Fondant Fancies to a reading from his book ‘You’re coming with me lad‘. This special visit was followed by a Q&A session and a book-signing too.
To celebrate the forthcoming publication of Mike’s new book ‘Not on my patch lad’, we’re giving away ten signed copies of ‘You’re coming with me lad’. For a chance to win, just email your contact details to our Liz with the subject line ‘Fondant Fancies’.Terms & Conditions: There are ten separate prizes each of a signed copy of the book ‘You’re coming with me lad…’. No applications from agents, third parties, organised groups or applications automatically generated by computer will be accepted.
