Standing down

June 25th, 2008 · Comments Off on Standing down · Life

Last night we went to the AGM of the local community centre, where Jayne stood down as chair after a year.  She previously did the job for the maximum three years, but back then she was not a school governor, independent custody visitor and an on-call appropriate adult for youth offenders.  I have been saying […]

We got called out to the community centre today to try and shut off the fire alarms.  Actually Jayne got called and I tagged along in case I could help.

Good deeds

November 17th, 2007 · Comments Off on Good deeds · Work

My good deed for today was nothing more than persuading someone else to do a good deed, not that he took much persuading.  The Broadfield Community Centre was recently given a decent network colour laser printer.  Last week I wired it all up to their hub and then ran into a brick wall when I […]

October 7th, 2007 · Comments Off on Found · Life

Last week the Broadfield Community Centre office finally found the details of the lady who bought my services at the charity auction back in August. I suppose it was inevitable, but when I called to see about going to sort out her computer the phone line was out of order. I tried again yesterday and […]

August 24th, 2007 · Comments Off on Slavery · Life

Its 200 years since the abolition of slavery – but about a month since I was sold into slavery myself. Not that it has had much of an impact on my lifestyle. It was all Jayne’s idea. She decided it would be a good idea to have an auction at the Broadfield Community Centre fete […]

Lloyds TSB

August 9th, 2007 · Comments Off on Lloyds TSB · Life

Poor old Lloyds TSB are going through a bit of a rough time at the moment, and staff must be feeling a bit vulnerable, so that makes it all the more impressive that a crowd of Lloyds TSB staff in Crawley gave up a day this week to go along to the Broadfield Community Centre […]

Broadfield Community Centre

June 25th, 2007 · Comments Off on Broadfield Community Centre · Politics

I have been clearing out the huge pile of old newspapers for recycling, and having a quick look through them before throwing them out. In an old copy of the Crawley News I found a story which annoyed me at the time (May 30th) but for some reason I never actually wrote anything about it. […]

Crawley: global village?

May 12th, 2007 · Comments Off on Crawley: global village? · Life

The day was already a strange one – no football at all and no Dr. Who – so me going to church just made it all the stranger. Yesterday I had a little note tacked onto a meeting notice for the CCAR committee, saying that there was a ‘Multi-cultural celebration’ at Christ the Lord church […]

Enquiry from the press

October 24th, 2006 · 4 Comments · Life, Politics

I had a very strange phone call the other day. It was a chap from a local paper asking me if I knew why Councillor Alan Quirk had resigned from the management committee of the Broadfield Youth & Community Centre. On the face of it a reasonable question, but I have not been involved in […]
