Retired teacher Bill Taylor launches book at Pint of Poetry in Stamford

Should old men wear shorts?

That’s the question former English teacher Bill Taylor will be helping to answer when he launches his first collection of poetry, Old Men Should Not Wear Shorts, at a Pint of Poetry night in Stamford.

A keen cricketer in his younger days, Bill is still heavily involved in Nassington Cricket Club and is a former Poet Laureate of Stamford.
