We were delighted when Julian won the Lifetime Achievement Award at the recent Sussex Women in Business awards.

She was delighted and surprised to be recognised for being ahead of her time for some considerable time’, saying “I am thrilled with my award, I look at it and am grateful that I enjoy a good graft; this coupled with a generous dollop of determination has driven my creativity along for over 60 years and with any luck a few more!”

Three new stories follow the  latest adventures of Ivy and her fellow members of The Railway Land Dogs’ Club, capturing the charm of our local Nature Reserve. The book also features several illustrations that children can colour in themselves. We’ve had lovely responses to it from readers both young and old – and if you walk your dog on the Railway Land you might even recognise your own pooch featuring in one of the adventures!


“You get three cracking stories for the price of one, each with a completely new adventure woven with historical facts and details of local countryside. They are stories of secrets, redemption, and most of all friendship. You end up wanting to join the club and share the fun!”                                                           Michael and Kitty Ann, conservationists and family founders of Drusillas Zoo.
