Hun­dreds head out for Way­far­ing

A bright idea by a lo­cal mum has seen her cel­e­brat­ing pub­li­ca­tion of her first book – a chil­dren’s Wind­sor sou­venir and tourist guide. Karen Ap­ple­ton hosted a launch event at Foggs, Daniels of Wind­sor’s travel themed fam­ily restau­rant.

‘Dis­cover Wind­sor with The Gar­den Friends in The Chang­ing of the Guard’ has colour­ful il­lus­tra­tions, a bright and sim­ple map that en­cour­ages ex­plo­ration, and a story set in the town, so chil­dren dis­cover Wind­sor in a unique way.

Karen says: “It feels in­cred­i­ble to be able to launch a book, es­pe­cially one that is about my home town. This wouldn’t have been pos­si­ble with­out sup­port from my fam­ily, and at my age I feel so much more con­fi­dent about hav­ing a go!”

She set up her own com­pany, Tot Map and Tales Ltd, to pub­lish the guide. It’s full of ques­tions from ‘Where did Harry and Meghan get mar­ried?’ to ‘Is there a play park nearby?. The an­swers are pro­vided in the ad­ven­tures of five char­ac­ters who cause a hul­la­baloo around the guards. The book is avail­able to buy from a va­ri­ety of shops in Wind­sor, as well as on­line, see totma­pand­
