Town Book Hits Milestones
Town Book Hits Milestones
Sunday, 20th Dec 2015 18:32

Adventures Of a Tractor Boy, Town fan Graeme Brooke’s book about his years following the Blues, recently hit a significant landmark with the sale of its 1,000th copy and will have raised more than £2,000 for the Colchester Special Care Baby Unit once all royalties have been received. 

Last week, it reached another milestone with a photo of the book in a 50th country having being added to its website - - by new women’s squash world number one Laura Massaro in Hong Kong.

There is still time to buy a copy of the book for Christmas via Amazon and if you have a copy already Graeme is still after pictures of the book from countries, landmarks or with well-known faces from around the world, which can be sent by email to to

The Colchester Special Care Baby Unit is a charity close to Graeme's heart as it looked after his daughter Leah who was born eight weeks prematurely.

Great news. I hinted that I would like a copy for Chrimbo. Let's hope they got the hint😜. Well done Graeme, great effort.
