Unfortunately Frank & Jessie are no longer with us, but they left a fantastic legacy in their witty, humorous and entertaining poems that were only found written down in an old tatty envelope when their house was cleared. It seemed fitting that this was shared with the rest of the world after their passing, as it seemed selfish to keep it locked away.
Both active members of the local community and their local church, Parkwood Methodist, they were well loved and respected and were always in the middle of things when it came to entertaining people, whether it was singing in the choir or public speaking.
Initially, this was released as a booklet for charity and raised £140 for the Old Folks Lunch Club at Parkwood Methodist. Therefore due to the popularity, it has been released as an eBook so the work can be enjoyed by more people. They were hugely loved and are greatly missed.
Frank and Jessie Littlewood (and some of their friends) had a way of capturing the spirit of their generation in a charming prose that can’t help but raise a smile.
This is but a small selection of pieces put together from works that were actually found written down, not only demonstrating the true entertainers they were, but also showing how much they loved one another and their many friends
