John Crowson

It was with regret that we learned of the passing of our oldest member, 97 year old John Crowson just days prior to the launch of the Felixstowe Scribblers Anthology. This was to be a momentous moment for John as he had never been published before.

John, from St Albans, was a regular guest at the Castle Lodge Hotel. He had written short stories and poetry over the years but his family never appreciated his talent. When he was invited along to a Scribblers meeting back in 2007, he jumped at the opportunity to share his work and was thrilled with the opportunity of having some of his work published in our anthology.

His short story 'The Mirror of my Mind' and poem 'Hopes Requiem' are included in the anthology.

Although John only came to a few meetings he became a friend of our group and will be sadly missed.
