Nick will introduce his latest book Newbury 365 a look at Newbury history in the form of a calendar. The book details at least one historical event that took place on each day of the year. The book covers every day events, the English Civil War, murder and much more. For example one story from 5th March 1894 tells of how eight year old Rhoda Sturgess saved the life of her sister whilst earlier in history on 4th January 1726 the River Kennet flooded flowing with such force that the bridge was swept away.
