Crawley Campaign Against Racism

October 10th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Life, Politics

Last night I went to the CCAR annual international social evening. Jayne was working so I had to go on my own; not a problem as I probably knew 100 of the people there. It was a bit of a special event, celebrating the 35th anniversary of the organisation, and my first real chance to […]

Do not swallow

April 13th, 2008 · Comments Off on Do not swallow · Politics

This morning I was out with some UAF colleagues, handing out leaflets and talking to voters at local shopping parades in Crawley.  So far most of those involved are also involved in political parties which doesn’t really work, because any anti-BNP campaignign we do is time we could have spent campaigning for our own parties.  […]

This does not appeal to me personally. I am not into dancing, except when I have got on the outside of a bottle of Breuilly and Rock El Casbah or Boogie Nights comes on the stereo, but this might appeal to those who have got hooked on Strictly Come Dancing: Time to dance brings you […]

Child poverty in Crawley

The other day Antonia wrote about some statistics released by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, with particular emphasis (obviously) on how they apply to Oxford. Just as obviously I could not resist looking them up to see how the JRF think we are doing in Crawley. It is worth mentioning something first about how the figures […]

Another day, another barn

December 13th, 2005 · Comments Off on Another day, another barn · Life

I found myself visiting two barn conversions in Crawley last week. I had been to both before, but I don’t think I ever visited both in the same week. The first was the Ifield Barn Theatre to see Alladin. Its a great little theatre. Only 80 seats, and a tiny stage, but the auditorium is […]

AIDS day

December 4th, 2004 · Comments Off on AIDS day · Life

This Wednesday was World AIDS day. This weekend there was a service at the Barn Church in Bewbush. Last year I went as one of my obligations as Deputy Mayor and, although I am not a religious person at all, I found it to be a pleasant service, and so I was looking forward to […]
