On Thursday 29th March, Northwich Library will be hosting an evening with the crime writing duo behind thriller writer Ashley Dyer.
The authors will explain how forensic investigations happen, with practical demonstrations, dramatic readings and lots of laughter in retelling their experiences writing a thriller novel. You will also see how an expert “lifts” fingerprints, try your hand at identifying footwear evidence and learn how location, research and science all contribute towards the writing process, as well as how conversations with homicide detectives can inspire plot and characters.
Cost: £5 per ticket (refreshments included)
To book, contact Northwich Library on 01606 275646. Tickets are also available via TicketSource.

Join us on our first ever #WetWelshWalk as we take on a 40 mile adventure along the beautiful North Wales Coast to spread the word that we are now supporting families affected by childhood cancer across North Wales as well as the rest of North West of England.
The Joshua Tree #WetWelshWalk starts at Queensferry in North Wales and ends in Llandudno North Wales.
Walkers will set off at around 9.00am on Saturday 12th May 2018 and aim to finish walking by Sunday afternoon 13th May 2018 (with an overnight pit-stop at Prestatyn – walkers must find their own accomodation).*
Walkers to register online and pay their £15 entry fee and receive a walker pack, including a sponsorship form and charity goodies. We’re asking walkers to raise £40 minimum sponsorship to help us continue to fund our support service FREE of charge for families that need us.
*Anyone not wishing to complete the 40 mile distance in one weekend will have the option to defer their second day of the walk until later in the year with photographic and/or fitness tracker evidence. Due to the nature of the walk, walkers must be age 16+ on the day of the event. Advance tickets only, no on the day entries accepted.

Local children’s cancer charity The Joshua Tree is hosting a Royal Wedding Afternoon Tea Party on Friday 18th May at Abbeywood Estate and Gardens in Delamere to mark the marriage of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle the following day.
Guests will be treated to a sumptuous afternoon tea as well as a complimentary tour of the 45-acre gardens as part of the red, white and blue Royal Wedding celebration fundraiser. Guests will also be treated to lessons in etiquette and have the chance to win a prize from the Royal ‘wedding gift list’ in the charity raffle on the afternoon.
Fran Wilson, Community and Events Co-ordinator at The Joshua Tree comments: “We’re getting out our hats and raising our glasses to the Royal couple the day before the rest of the world tunes in to watch the main event. All monies raised from the event will go towards kitting out a kitchen ‘heart space’ in the new Support Centre where families will meet and share their experiences.”
The charity is now supporting over 100 local families affected by childhood cancer and is building a new Support Centre in Dalefords Lane in Sandiway this year to meet the growing demand on its services.
Fran adds: “The team at Abbeywood Estate and Gardens have been incredibly generous and supportive and we know that it will be a very special afternoon celebrating a special event in a beautiful romantic setting.”
Tickets cost £25 per person and include afternoon tea and a glass of fizz as well as entertainment and a tour of the gardens. Tables of eight will also receive a complimentary bottle of prosecco. Tickets are available to purchase online at http://www.thejoshuatree.org.uk/upcoming-events or via The Joshua Tree Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/events/130246861094423/.
