Big turnouts to campaign for Lilian Greenwood in the west and north of the Nottingham South constituemcy.
Bigger than was mobilised in 1997.
Could only make the session in the afternoon so missed the briefings by national political commentator Owen Jones.
A grade listed church on St.Matthias Road, off Carlton Road, in St.Anns; had become pretty derelict and a focus for ASB; transformed in 6 years by the Coptic Orthodox church, who have 23 millions followers in Egypt.
Consecrated by their Pope, Tawdros II of Alexandria.
And it’s beautiful. So beautiful.
Paintings and carvings; stories and conviction.
A special addition to the city of Nottingham.
So different from my time 46 years ago when you had six questions each and they’d ask you trick questions like “what does a double white line down the centre of the road mean?”
Road safety has to be stuck at. New technology, quieter electric cars, even schemes like residents parking schemes changing how busy roads are, and changing visibilty.
And perhaps the recent trend of reducing killed and seriously injured is about to change?
Can programmes and events like these quizzes survive the cuts?
The centre, in St.Anns, serves around 1,000 Alevis who live in Nottingham. A minority religious group from Turkey, numbering around 3 million, who have suffered and do suffer varying ranges of persecution.
As best I can, news concerning my role as Lord Mayor of Nottingham will be shared via the Twitter account @LordMayorNottm.
I will also attempt to not refer to attending events as Lord Mayor when sharing stories picked up at events.
“News and Political views” is plainly a political web-site, so beyond this post, I’ll try not to mention the civic role on this site any further.
Twenty minutes in and it looked grim. Ipswich were comfortable. Forest’s midfield didn’t know how to get the ball up the field. Blackburn were 2-0 up elsewhere and 2 points above Forest. Birmingham were winning away too. Ipswich fans sang “Que Sera, … you’re going to Shrewsbury!”
Towards the end of the first half, Forest developed quick attacks, one of which led to a Forest player being fouled in the box, and their no. 9 comfortably converted the penalty kick. Now Forest were safe by a goal difference of 1. But if another was needed, it was not clear how it would come.
Second half and Forest were much better, keeping the ball in the Ipswich half. And finally a shot from 30 years looked the business and was behind the Ipswich keeper’s long dive. And Blackburn had conceded a goal. Comfort enough for the No. 9 to miss a second penalty, though he made up which an individual driving run and smash.
Now the sell-out crowd waited for the final whistle, to both celebrate on the pitch and wave a “Fawaz out” banner.
