The Inside Story of the Radio Phone-in.....

Spring Cleaning 2014 style

Spring Cleaning 2014 style.
 
In my experience, few things give a better sense of achievement than a couple of hours turning out a cupboard, deciding what needs to be kept and what can be safely be discarded.

Review of British Paraorchestra, Ipswich School Festival of Music

26 September 2013.
The fourth annual Ipswich School Festival of Music opened in the Great School hall with an orchestra that most of us had last seen on the TV at the opening ceremony of the Paralympics in 2012, and The British Paraorchestra has, since their first visit to Suffolk for the Snape Proms in 2012, gained a well-deserved reputation, releasing a Christmas CD last year.
