John Rosamond (author of Save the Triumph Bonneville! – The inside story of the Meriden Workers’ Co-op) has been out and about answering questions raised by the book at specially organised forums around the UK.

The first of these forums took place at the Manchester Branch of the TOMCC. Well organised by the Hon Secretary David Porter at the club's regular meeting place "The Arden Arms" in Stockport; over 30 enthusiastic branch members attended, taking part in a very lively "Q and A" session lasting over 2 hours. Sales of signed copies of the book took place at the end of the forum.

John recently received a letter from Patrick McAndrew (an airline pilot) a very satisfied customer. He had read the book twice and wished to have it signed. He and his friend Mike, also an airline pilot asked John if he would meet them at the National Motorcycle Museum for the book signing.

The next Meriden Co-op Forum is at the TOMCC Peterborough Branch in May.
