Joe Stead – The Ramblings of an Old Codger

Traditional Arts Development, and more specifically Pete Heywood, worked with Joe Stead to publish his book ‘Ramblings of an Old Codger’. Sadly, Joe Stead sadly passed away in March 2017. The project was Joe’s project, but owing to his illness at the time, we set it up so that it could be ordered from this page. All payments are processed, via PayPal, using an account that was set up by Joe.

Joe’s widow, Nora Stead, currently has some books available. Nora and their wider family are keen that Joe is remembered. Joe was very aware that he was writing a book which would be part of his ‘legacy’ alongside his various recordings and personal memories that his friends will have. As far as sales of the book goes, I am acting as an intermediary for Nora, managing the technical side. I will advise Nora of any books ordered and she will send them our directly.

If you need any help or have any questions, you can email me, Pete Heywood, directly – pete@peteheywood.co.uk The processing of orders may take a few days – and possibly be even further delayed owing to restricted movements because of the current coronavirus situation. Please be patient.

The book is a large format book priced at £40. It is a physically large book and postal costs are substantial. The buttons below allow you to order the book including delivery charges to where you live. All payments are processed by PayPal – to ensure proper security – but you DON’T need to have a PayPal account to process any transactions. You can use any credit or debit card, but PayPal will handle the process.
