Goodbye Flaming June Witter

G’day Fans of T’Witter

Worra week! Solstice grandly celebrated by some of us. Did you?? This week’s slightly quieter. Slightly. Let’s go!

WEDS 28TH JUNE BACUP PRIDE meet 10am at Irwell Terrace for the gardening work on former derelict site. I think someone supplies brews n biks to lure you along there ……
WEDS 28TH JUNE meet 5pm outside Green Squirrel (M/cr Rd/Bury Rd junction, Haslingden) for gardening tlc. If it’s chuckin’ it down, Kathy will rearrange. She’s on 07752210866 (or is that Mark’s – ok so it might be 07803292928) for confirmation.

THURS 29TH JUNE meet 9.30 outside CP store (back of market) or 10am at inbound (McD’s) layby on bypass. We always go whatever the weather. Yup, insane. Or devoted to the cause, maybe. (PS thank you Aunty Lynn for gorgeous brew and chokky things!)

FRIDAY 30TH celebrate (is that the right word?) the end of June with us at Buffers, 8pm onwards.

SATURDAY 1ST JULY Bacup Pride crew meet 10am at Wall of History garden, Yorkshire St next to the Nats in town centre. Go do it – brighten up YOUR town, luvly citizen!

SUNDAY 2ND JULY meet 9.30am at CP Store or 10am on Town Square, rain or shine. Apart from giving the T Square it’s “monthly” we’ll be going to other adjacent sites to give ’em a Rawtenstall Tidy. Plans include a river litter-pick (no deep wading involved – unless someone wants to do that to get old rubbish out). A social glass of something after, mayhap?? The monthly market’s on T Square as well.
SUNDAY 2ND JULY Hassy crew litterpick, meet 10am @ council car park John St next to Co-op. If wet ring Kathy (see above) first.

IN THI DIARY, MOTHER …….
1. Weds 12th July. RHS Judges are in town to look at our glorious gardens. Timings and details as soon as we have ’em but you’ll be welcome to tag along.
2. Weds 26th July – some daft ‘apporth’s celebrating his 70th by going up The Old Man of Coniston. Appropriate, eh?? All other supporters and daft ‘apporth’s wanting to join in are sooo welcome! 07877211314 for details.
3. Weds 27th Sept QAVS presentation, County Hall Preston. This next bit’s a repeat request for you to send your nominations for worthy attendees (we can only take 10) to roger@civic-pride.org.uk
4. Sat 30th Sept there’s 11 of us on the Civic Pride dining train. Apparently East Lancs Railway don’t want a load of separate cheques so we’ve got to re-do all that, which gives late-comers chance to grab a place and join us. Cheques for £48 per person payable to Jean Neville and post to her at : 1, The Loom, Holcombe Rd BB4 4NG but please do it now. Defer it not.
5. Sat 21st Oct His Worship The Mayor Of Rossendale accompanied by the Mayoress and notable celebs will present the QAVS award to us at a local “do”. 11am to 3pm with the main event at 1pm. We’ve loads more than just the 10 wanting to go to the 27th Sept bunfight (see above) so we’re having a Rawtenstall-based event for everyone so pop it in t’diary! Venue : Kay St Baptist Church hall. We’re quietly amazed Mayor & Co want to get anywhere near us disreputable crew but – hey – go with the flow folks! (PS brothers n sisters in other gangs – Hassy, Bacup, Weir, WW Bottom, C’booth, W’foot etc etc ALL very welcome.) Free buffet provided (granny sez that’ll bring ’em in).
That’s the lot for this week – except, to our Secret Gardeners to say you’ve got just 2 weeks to get sorted before RHS judges come to give your joint the third degree so – well – go-go-go eh?? Every night this week. With your mates. And family. And neighbours. And random passers-by.

Will go away ‘n’ be quiet now.

Cheers!

T’Witter Addendum
They’ll shoot me!!

I’ve got it in big letters scrawled on the back of my hand and still didn’t Witter it. Oops!

THURS 29TH JUNE 2PM TO 8PM Flood Fayre at St Mary’s Chambers, official opening 2.30pm by Alyson Barnes. Organised by local volunteers from R’stall Flood Forum with all-day inputs from RBC, Lancs CC, United Utilities, Environment Agency, National Flood Forum, local councillors and wide range of specialist providers. Free entry. Of course!

AND – apparently Jean’s address (see this week’s Witter re Dining Train event) is 31 The Loom Holcombe Rd Rossendale BB4 4AZ and not as given in T’Witter. Apologies!

Anyone got a darkened room for me to lie down in??
