PRIDE OF TAMESIDE SPORTS AWARDS – took place at Dukinfield Town Hall on 28th September, and the Unsung Hero of the Year award went to Yvonne Kelly (posthumous). Yvonne had taught hundreds of children how to swim and coached water polo participants as well as refereeing water polo events for many years. And, Yvonne kept our lawns immaculate, between her swimming, driving the 250 bus and looking after her family. A great lady.
BE OF GOOD CHEER – one bishop said that Pope Frances told the English bishops last week that ‘they should act as if they had a caffe latte at breakfast and not a bowl of vinegar’.
TIME FOR BLACK PUDDINGS AND STEWS – as we settle into autumn. Suspect that our diet is changing slightly as the days shorten and the weather cools. Out go the salads and in come the casseroles! Grey skies for much of the past week; we are keeping our fingers crossed for a St Luke’s summer.
