Congratulations, Suz!

Good to see Mayor or Worcester, Paul Denham, in the photo with Suz and Heather. What a happy group they are 😀

The sixth, sensational, Worcestershire Festival exploded in to life with the crowning of our new Worcestershire Laureate Suz Winspear! The opening night was magical with readings from young writers and cool compere Matt Windle.

Shortlisted superstars, Charley Barnes and Peter Sutton, wowed us with their words. Peter’s performance was impressive and Charley’s was heartbreakingly beautiful.

Suz Winspear, Worcester’s ‘Resident Goth’, was almost speechless! After being shortlisted several times for the honour, this award was more than well deserved. Suz reminded the Worcester audience of our heritage, declaring that, as Laureate, the poet will raise awareness of our modern poets and local talents to ensure this generation leaves an impressive heritage for others.

Congratulations to Charley and Peter for a super achievement. And congratulations to Suz, Worcestershire’s Poet Laureate!

There’s A Hole…

…in my garden where a giant fish pond used to be. Misky said you’d like to see work in progress…

A friend is clearing her back garden so she can landscape it and is donating all her topsoil (yay!) so we’re benefitting 😀

Here are some photos of the hole before and in two more stages thus far, note that some planting is going on too…it’s miraculous how a few plants and a puppy change the scene.
