We've known Alan Hubbard for a long time, he's a near neighbour of ours, so when we heard that he has written his life story, "I'm Alan Hubbard, who are you?" we felt he deserves a mention on BurtonWeb News. The book is a chunky tome: some 337 pages, and is peppered with an assortment of colour and black and white photographs illustrating Alan's life.
I'm really pleased to be able to say that we are now a collection point for Morecambe Bay Foodbank!
