John Challis, better known to most as Boycie from Only Fools and Horses and the Green Green Grass is looking forward to this year’s Shrewsbury Flower Show after his successful appearances over the last two year. He lives on the Shropshire/Herefordshire border and is a keen gardener, so this will not only be a great opportunity to source new plants but also to meet lots of people who enjoy those TV programmes! John is also an author and has published two volumes of his autobiography and two novels in a planned series of REGGIE stories, based on his experiences since moving to this area. They are gentle comedy in the genre of Tom Sharpe and locals will recognise many of the characters! There will be an opportunity to buy signed copies of all his books and to take photos. Later this year John will be producing a book on his house and garden titled The Treasure of Mortimer. He joined Twitter in 2011 and now @BeingBoycie has more than 50,000 followers, which he finds rewarding in that he can interact with fans and also promote his books and his one man show Only Fools and Boycie. His website wigmorebooks.com has all the information. John hopes to meet lots of new faces and to catch up with old friends at Shrewsbury Flower Show and invites you all to come along and enjoy the unique atmosphere of such a special venue.
