For April’s First Friday and in lieu of the ability to meet face-to-face we’d like to share some songs from Hugh Nankivell who should have been performing today. He’s been working on some ‘songs for loneliness’ and for sharing. – a musical hug. Thanks, Hugh.


And then there’s the “walking with Rick’ series which Hugh says he’s been told is ‘a bit Flanders & Swann’ but the none the worse for being so! Hugh lives near the sea in Torquay.




And finally we wanted to share this poem from the wonderful Tania Haberland who is now based in Italy (via England, South Africa, and more…)


Stay safe, be kind to those around you…And keep in touch!
