As I have already informed you, I had to have a radical rethink of my original Local Hero idea as my subject went away on holiday for 2 weeks! I decided to change tack entirely, and where I was going to make a real documentary, I decided to make a fake one! A fiction film, basically. Our hero - Michael Bosworth, 32, unemployed - has thwarted an ongoing intrusion into the tranquility of local village life, and in doing so has become a bit of a local celebrity. Here Michael recounts the events as they unfolded, with the help of local councillor Lewis Timms and the enthusiastic and supportive residents of Horncastle. Dan Shelton plays the role of Michael, and Clayton Charles plays the role of the councillor. Thanks to Sylvia and Martin Holden, Dan and Lynsey Fennell, and all the people of Rickmansworth who were kind enough to join in with the filming. Thanks also to Andrew Taylor for his help in making the film happen, both in prep and on the shoot day. Please note: this is a work of fiction - no resemblance to actual persons living or dead, or to actual organisations, is intended.
