One Thing, Then Another Thing
I’ve had very little time to blog recently and so all sorts of stuff has passed by without comment on this page.
The Christmas Light Switch On went perfectly, despite a few hiccups behind the scenes, the whole event was fab and the turnout broke records, again. Each year we have to move everything up a notch and more and more people come along. Yes, there was the usual handful of whiny political moaners, but they did nothing to dim the success of this amazing event.
Meanwhile our MP became Brexit Secretary sparking a great spectacle of emotion, opinion, joy and fury. From the point of view of Hard Brexiteers like myself, its disappointing. But I’ve known Steve Barclay a long time and I just don’t buy the idea that he’s “sold out.” I hope and believe that he is playing a long time, smiling along with the Prime Minister while knowing full well this ridiculous deal will never get through Parliament. If this is how things go then he’ll be an important man, negotiating our way through the inevitable No Deal situation.
Tomorrow, we have royal visitors. Prince Charles and Camilla will be coming to Wisbech to visit St. Peters Church and meet representatives from many local voluntary organisations and heritage organisations. Wisbech Castle has a stall, as do many others. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are, of course, VIPs on a massive scale and preparations are well underway for the big day. I won’t personally be meeting them, I ceded my place on the stall to allow an extra volunteer to go. But I’ll be outside the Castle at the appropriate moment with other volunteers, hoping to catch a glimpse. A great day for our Town.
I’ve got to get my November newsletter out this week (running out of days in November) and we are still wall to wall meetings and planning for Christmas events so there’s really no spare time before Christmas at all. Never mind, who needs sleep? :)
