ACTRESS AND AUTHOR THELMA BARLOW
GIVES THUMBS UP TO NEW BOOK
Actress Thelma Barlow who hails from Huddersfield and is best known for her roles as Mavis in Coronation Street and Dolly in the sitcom Dinnerladies, and most recently as Mrs Oscar Garmunder in the 2016 film Florence Foster Jenkins, has given the book the thumbs up having purchased a copy on the recommendation of a friend.
An author herself of ‘Organic Gardening with Love’ Thelma, who went to school in Huddersfield and lived in the town for 25 years, beginning her acting career with the Huddersfield Thespians, observes: “I’ve never had the inclination to own a pet myself but I am an ardent believer in compassion and looking out for our fellow beings, whether they be humans or animals. I became drawn into the book because it isn’t a simple pet story, but rather about taking risks and beating the odds and about kindness, love and rescue. It’s an uplifting story, whether you’re into dogs or not, and a positive message in today’s world.”
