  1. It is so nice to learn that there is are celebrations going on in the city. A lovely variety of dance, music, costume, drama, poetry, artwork, chinoiserie, culture, tradition, meaning, understanding, diversity, inclusivity, education and of course getting the job done but in the right way. It is great to witness lots of volunteers who have given their time and skills to honour the occasion. The decorations are fab, the food gorgeous, and the people well folksy and homely. Much gratitude is due to the people who have planned and organised the event and have presented a selection of different events for each and everyone regardless of ability, status or background to take part in the festivities and make it a great day out for all. Well done and let’s hope that we all take something from this and out it to practice in our lives. Felicitations. Keep it locked.
