A cold morning today. Diamond frost scintillates in the low light. Breath billowing out in clouds. Chill in the air. But a beautiful dawning. Gentle rush of the waves,and cry of a gull. Colours enhanced in the clear air. Snowy headlands merge into blushing sea. A fresh awakening.

Gillian Sims gave free books to members of her community on Tuesday 23rd October. 2012
The Manners collection was published in 2009.
This book was at the heart of the community on Tuesday where it was first launched at the Chase library three years ago.
Many children will have the pleasure of reading the light-hearted poetry about manners and will engage with the fun characters while they tell their tales.
Photos and books were exchanged in the community,and all were delighted to receive the books.

Bomber Command Poem The nose section from Ex-RAAF Lancaster ’Old Fred’ being discussed by modern suits at the Imperial War Museum, Lambeth. James Kightly. For me, the poem sums up some of the diversity of the contribution from within the UK and outside. Although titled ’Lancasters’ it stands well, I think, for all of the Command and the crews […] […]
