Glyn Hughes the fantastic poet

I am so sad to have to add to my blog the horrid new of Glyn's death 24th May after his 2 year struggle with Lymphoma, I only found out this weekend. Glyn and I have kept in touch via e.mail and post for a couple of years but only got to meet him and his lovely partner Liz early this year.

My thoughts go out to Liz at this sad time.

It was a hat off this Saturday at the mill that ended in a dance off!  To my surprise, lots of people turned up and I went home with a bug in my hair that I found still in there in the morning!

John Baldwin, Morcombe Mark and me.

Pendle Witch Investigation

John Clayton and I have been looking into old places in Pendle to find something pre 1612, I'm looking for a venue to kick off my research trail in July. We've discovered that my friend Matt has a very old cellar in Newchurch, Pendle, so we went to investigate.( Below) John to the left,Matt and me.

We discovered that maybe the steps are external and could of come from another place in the village but also this house is put together in different eras so it's really difficult to see the original.

Lots of things

To start with I have to say hurrah to finishing the no face painting! It was the 3rd attempt but I did it and Barbara was pleased with the results.

The second also finished, extra large painting by the young people at Nelson youth group, I think they worked really well and their end canvas is briil! (Below) There is to be a grand opening of the new centre in July were the painting will be unveiled!

Friday night was a pie and a pint to welcome my brother Roger as the new artist to the mill, you cannot beeet the cheese pie at the Cross Gates!
