I certainly did mean "thong" : )

Reminds me of a preamble by Noel Coward to his song "A Bar on the Piccola Marina" when he refers to "hordes of middle aged women all determined to have a ball".....

Thanks for your comments Cynthia and your continued interest in my stuff.

Gareth, re: Poundshops, was a 'thong of aunts' on purpose; or did you mean a 'throng of aunts'. I thought 'thong' was very funny.

Profile pictures are taking a while longer to load for some reason. I've had the same problem. I've also found that I can't load any pictures that have been cropped or edited after they've been taken. Don't know if that is unique to me. I think it has to be Jpeg format as well.

Sorry - realise that you were addressing your comment to Winston, but I'm a meddler and I've got a better arse than him...

Thanks for your comments on The Clackety-Clack, Gareth. Congratulations again on Weyfarers; I've tried them two or three times without success.

Hi Ann!
We nicked the idea from some other town, but now can't remember where?! In another life I was used to running quite complicated projects, so the admin side has been OK. I got the Town Centre Manager involved, made sure we were co-ordinated with the Town Festival and then cold called the shops, emphasising that the cost to them was nothing and that people would be looking in their windows and more likely to buy their goods! Hey presto, 30 shops were easily got....
The poets are members of the North Herts Stnaza of the Poetry Society so I know their standard and one of the shopkeepers came up with his own stuff which was pretty good!
The poems will be up 11/06 to 26/06 in fair Letchworth town : )

Hello - I was interested to read about the project in Letchworth, having poems in shop windows sounds really good! Do let us know how it goes. Was it difficult to co-ordinate? How did you find the poets, choose the poems, get the shop keepers interested? I don't quite feel up to starting a WOL in Cornwall where I live (maybe one day!) but this seems like a good way to maybe start getting some interest going. Oh, and welcome to WOL by the way! :)

Hi Gareth,
The gig guide is not quite as searchable as we would like - wil be better soon - but I have had a quick look through the towns list. Not sure what counts as North Herts but I am guessing Hitchin, Stevenage area? Cambridge has quite a few events. Anyhow, if you go to the gig guide and type the following into search, you might find what you are looking for, the other thing to bear in mind is that new events are coming in at around five a day, so keep watching. And you might want to set your own up. Give me a shout if you do want to do so, perhaps we can help. we will certainly give you what support we can.
there have been events from time to time in
Hitchin, Dunstable, Leighton Buzzard, St Albans, Stony Stratford and Ware. so it is worth searching the website from time for these places and Northampton too has a regular event.
