The Village That Was Formby

by Joan A. Rimmer
£18.99   paperback  Nirvana Books (2007)

The Village That Was Formby by Joan A. Rimmer This title incorporates My Formby and Formby Remembered.
Joan Rimmer was born in Formby in 1935 of an old established local family. She began writing in 1987 and received instant acclaim for her evocative nostaligic poems on Formby.
Two years later, with the publication of My Formby, she became Formby's bestselling author of 1989 and again repeated this success in 1992 with Formby Remembered.
Her books have circulated worldwide, bringing pleasure to thousands and firmly placing her at the forefront of Formby's most talented writers. Her renowned local history charity silde shows attract capacity audiences, and her local press contributions invariably reflect the deep love she has for the village where she was born.
In 1998 she was honoured with the first Formby Citizen of the Year Award for her services to the community.
