About this deal

Author Hunter Davies was among supporters who breathed a sigh of relief this week at the news that the Museum of Ryde – on the verge of closure due to financial woes – has been reprieved. In the early stages of my relationship with Margaret, when we were courting, both still living in Carlisle, with me as a student and Margaret still at school in the upper sixth, trying the Oxbridge entrance exams, we had the most appalling rows.

Then, on the day we were going home, we saw a house in Ryde for sale, and just managed to get in for a quick look on the way to the ferry. He is mixing his move to Ryde with travels to some of the Island's gems such as Dimbola, Osborne and the Garlic Farm. The definitive guide to England's 6,000 GP practices: From number of patients and doctors to how many appointments are face-to-face (as well as what patients REALLY think). Mountbatten’s Chief Executive, Nigel Hartley, has this morning (Thursday) issued a statement regarding government funding for hospices, following the release of the attached report. I remember walking around the museum and seeing a party of people who suddenly recognised the school they’d gone to.When we got into bed on our first night back, in our little love nest, I told her about The Beatles, how John and Paul used to have awful arguments over their company Apple, all about how it should be run, and by whom. Despite Hunter’s late arrival – he’d gone to Claridge’s instead of the Connaught, and poor Claire was ‘hysterical’ – the interview was brilliant, once he’d got Jack ‘to remove his stupid Ray-Bans’. It is bound to be fraught with health scares and the weaknesses and problems the years bring, but I tend not to think or worry about them. Living cheek-by-jowl, day after day, all warts and wrinkles and annoying habits fully exposed, might well result in some unpleasant discoveries.

Join them for an evening in the company of esteemed author, journalist and all-round good egg Hunter Davies OBE. Hunter Davies, journalist, author and broadcaster, who has just published his latest book ‘Love in Old Age’ looked across over his cappuccino with a twinkle in his eye and said: “I am auditioning. A wryly humorous memoir from Hunter Davies, as he falls in love again in his eighties and chronicles the first year of living with his new girlfriend in their cottage on the Isle of Wight. I had been married for 55 years (to the novelist and biographer Margaret Forster, best-known for the iconic 1965 novel Georgy Girl) until she died in 2016. Then we decided against it: I could not live in her house in south London; it was too clean and white and immaculate for me.

My wife had died seven years earlier, after 55 years of marriage, and for thirty years we had had a home in Lakeland, near where we were both brought up. Truth about Neighbours star Troy Beckwith's death at age 48 as family announce there will be no funeral: 'He fought a tough battle.
