Local poet, author and photographer Rob E. Smith (of Longfellow Road) has compiled a book on the area called Patchwork.
The book is a celebration in poetry, prose and pictures of the Hamptons Wetlands and other local wildlife sanctuaries.
There is a book launch and signing today (Saturday 13th August) at Maple Lodge in the Hamtons between 10am and 5pm.
There is also an exhibition of wildlife photographs from the Wetlands, a bird and animal quiz with prizes and, of course, the book signing.
Everybody is welcome to pop in. Get in before midday to get your copy signed.
