One of my poems, ‘A Memory of the Hop Fields’ which was in the above film inspired the Wellington Primary School in Herefordshire to make their own film and what a good job they did. A beautiful and evocative piece. Watch it here.

‘Apple Water’ is a small collection of poems and short prose based on Raine’s Romany family who amongst other things picked fruit, vegetables and hops in both Herefordshire and Kent. Many of these poems have been inspired by actual events, personal stories and photographs, as well as the inclusion of ‘found’ words which help to bring the characters to life.
