New Meadows based troupes in the Carnival and a mini road network for kiddies to learn bicycle riding and road safety. A spider conference and the European Squash championships – squash came home.
A Radio Nottingham show, reflecting on the disappointment that came with the first Forest vs Salop match and on the failure to do enough with Nottingham history stories, including the Battle of Mapperley Hills.
Celebrations of independence for Jamaica, India and Pakistan, though with a smack of imperialist condescension.
Rain spoiling the Salop match, but serious damage being done elsewhere – in the USA who’ve ignored Al Gore, his movie and his sequel, and in south Asia.
Political news from the USA was worse – including the condoning of a terrorist attack by The President. So we remember Heather Heyer. And in Nottingham, we remembered Alan Clark and Kate Rush too.
Certain intractable issues in The Meadows are still being tackled – many reviewed during a visit by Lilian Greenwood MP.
A site visit to St.Peter’s.
The Lace Market had a mixed time, a scrubbed street, renewed rest gardens and a car park fire. Sorrow over the demolished Black Boy Hotel.
An eventful and emotional August.
