Last night I went to a Save Our NHS, presentation and film; I am not an overtly political person but I do admire and I am grateful for those who do put the big issues before their own personal needs.
I didn’t agree with all what was said, and I did wish for a bit more cohesion (and attendance) in the meeting, but it was good to get a variety of voices and opinions aired. The film was called Sell-Off, it is about how the UK’s NHS is being systematically privatised, it is certainly worth watching, if only to jolt any apathy you may have.
Hopefully next year we are going to put on a 4 or 5 day writing festival, curated and facilitated by the members of Louth Poetry and Creative Writing Group. We are launching the first discussion proposals in the Monday Morning Writers’ Cafe on the 1st October.
The Wounded Healers are launching their new album Found in Translation at Louth Jazz Club this evening. It promises to be a good night which I understand is sold out. Good luck to all.
That album launch clashes with the Yorkshire football derby of Sheffield Wednesday versus Leeds United at Hillsborough; for quite some while, indeed since Sky TV moved the date of the fixture for their own ends I have had the dilemma of which to attend. In the end, I chose local.
