Tony Baldwinson from RADA (Reaseheath Agricultural Development Academy) has just written and published his second novel and is keen to encourage any other interested staff and students to pursue their own Creative Writing.
With this in mind, Tony’s decided to run a lunchtime talk on with a Q&A on Tuesday 4th April, 12.30pm, in Tecc Bacc B4, to explore creative writing techniques and look at publishing on a budget.
Tony’s second book #Resistance is a crime thriller set in London, Brazil, Canada and the USA. His protagonist is Maria Kaminski, a feisty young woman with attitude. Through her perspective the book explores organised crime, climate change and businesses in Russia and America. His first book, also starring Maria, had 4-star reviews on Amazon and was said by readers to be “a page-turner.”
Tony writes under the pseudonym or ‘pen name’ of Jack Duffy in honour of his grandfather. Jack was a school caretaker who in childhood had to refuse a scholarship for secondary school fees because his family was too poor to pay the daily rail travel from Oswaldtwistle.
Tony was very pleased that the printed books safely arrived at the college reception desk in time to get a copy to his mother for Mother’s Day. Like his first novel, he has donated a copy to the fiction shelves in the College Library.
“Everyone has a story to tell,” said Tony, “and it is far easier than you might think to see your own words in print. Perhaps my most pleasing work was a small book on our family history, printed as a Christmas present for all my relations. In their own small way they went wild with it on Facebook.”

Reaseheath’s netball team has gone from strength to strength so far this year, with students from a whole range of departments including Sport, Public Services, Equine, Animal Management, Agriculture and Food attending training and representing the college team.
Most recently the team participated in a tournament with MMU Cheshire against all three of their teams. The Reaseheath girls held their own with a convincing 10-4 win against MMU Cheshire third team playing some high quality netball.
MMU Cheshire’s second and first teams provided much more of a challenge but the Reaseheath team gained a lot from the experience and will be ready to challenge them again later in the season.
The team have some more games lined up against local sixth forms and colleges, and hoping that they will continue to improve and develop as a squad.
Sarah Ruff, College Sport Maker: “it is great to see so many students from a range of courses engaging in netball. The team have really developed over the past 2 years and it is great that I know have a squad of talented players to choose from for matches.”
Want to have a go at netball? Student netball training takes place in the sports hall every Monday 7pm and Wednesday 1pm, come along to a session or contact Sarah Ruff for more information on firstname.lastname@example.org.
