West India Regiment

imageOffered to help mend the standard of the West India regiment when it came loose. Was honoured to be allowed! Used my new super concoction and did the job! It was on parade the following day. That’s good management under “H” !

Tommy’s Passchendaele

imageWe had three performances. Two on Wednesday with the Lord Mayor coming to the later performance, and one on Thursday for the schools again. It was very moving, and superbly acted by the professionals. I loved being next to the Band of the Parachute Regiment, and enjoyed the opportunity to educate our youngsters on the meaning of the Great War. ULA was superb getting the audience on side with various slogans and shouting that the kids loved, although that was not done during the evening adult performance! On Thursday I managed to make it JIT, cycling for the first time from the Council House to Birmingham University in under 16 minutes! It was quicker than driving, finding a parking space, and walking!

Save the Fairways

image On a filthy weather day, (I am under the umbrella)  many supporters braved it and protested outside the Council House at their badly handled policy of closing the Fairways. As a governor of Victoria School I recognise how necessary this institution is to carers, and recipients. There will be nowhere for them to go, and I do not believe this policy has been carefully considered.

This has the welcome support of the local Muslim Community which acknowledges the value of local heritage assets.

Irresponsible

imageHalf empty show designed to criticise the Ofsted, and inspectorate criticism of the “Trojan Horse” fundamentalist management. These people, who class themselves as influential, do not realise the effect they have on the impressionable mass of one community. Mind you the “professor” was educated at Cambridge – QED.

LLanstephan Castle

imageHalf term break in Ferryside Carmarthenshire. Walked dog in end of Hurricane Bryan. Got soaked! Looked out across river, and saw this castle. Decided to drive over and see better view. Very impressive example of South Wales castles, wherein the Anglo- Norman invasion of Ireland was planned with the wholehearted support of the Holy Father!
