A Worksop author has published his first book - at the age of 83!
Fred Foster, of Larwood Avenue, has written an autobiography about his time living in the town and his experiences of the Navy from 1949-1954.
He said that he decided to write the book, ‘Under Seven Rainbows’, after a historian told him his life was an important part of history.
“It was enjoyable, it brought back a lot of memories,” Fred said.
“A couple of people have read it and said it was interesting, that made me feel good.”
“The book includes local history, my time in the Navy and the people that have inspired me.”
The book is available in the Local History section at Worksop Library.
