If you're into Carp Angling, then this is one book you won't want to put down.
Catching Memories' is not an autobiography, though, and was never intended to be one.
It is a remarkable collection of carp stories written in true Hammond style, with energy, enthusiasm, humour and just a hint of obsession...

Kent Kidney Cycle Challenge 25th September 2011
To commemorate 40 years of kidney services in Kent, Steve Coker, together with 26 members of the renal department have completed a 2 day cycle ride.
The challenge was aid of the a local charity set up in 1967 as a tribute to a Ramsgate policeman who saved the life of a boy in difficulties on the town’s West cliff.
Later Mr Squirrell suffered kidney failure and needed dialysis, for which he travelled to the ‘local unit’ in London.
Pressure put on the South Thames regional board and monies from the fund were instrumental in establishing dialysis services in Kent with opening of the first kidney unit in Canterbury in Dec 1971.
Since then the trust has provided ongoing support to people suffering from kidney disease and assisted research into chronic and acute kidney failure.
