Comet in the River

Great excitement, on the way to visit Jireh last week I espied a Gypsy catamaran in the river. Well I just had to call on them, meeting two very pleasant people in Graham and Katherine with whom Lynn and I spent an interesting and very pleasant couple of hours. What a small world, Katherine used to work for Jubilee Sailing Trust, overlapping with Hannah by a few weeks.

All systems go!

A new year - well new academic year and all things are starting up again. The band has had its first rehearsal and a number of gigs are in the diary, the first being a RNLI fund-raising river cruise this Friday. I have a great sextet of jazzers who will really make the Christie Belle swing!
Top of the Town Club starts up next week and we are having a change of format for the teens club - still with the emphasis on showing them that Jesus loves them.
Still waiting to hear from the school - now an 'Academy' - about teaching starting up again.
Of course, river work has been very busy but starts to run down as the sailing season finishes - apart from the more hardy mariners.
Lots of Uni viewing to do with Lyds, and we are looking forward for a visit to Durham in Oct to see Mum, Hazel and the family.
