#LocalPeoplePoems – A Community Project!

My bus driver’s brilliant, he draws the best cartoons, He likes his folky music and he’s always whistling tunes! Even on the stressful days, he’ll always smile and joke, So if you see him, say hello, ‘cos he’s a jolly nice bloke! #LocalPeoplePoems

I’ve decided to start a new blog to celebrate everyone who makes me smile! It’s called #LocalPeoplePoems, because there are so many nice people in this area, I like writing silly things and I decided that short poems would be the best way to do that!

If anyone wants to join me and write or send in their own #LocalPeoplePoems, please send them in, comment, tweet with the #LocalPeoplePoems hashtag, write them on post-it notes or just send them to people to show that you appreciate them! If you like I’ll post them on the blog (anonymously or with credit – as you choose).

In true Blue Peter style, here’s one I made earlier (click here to visit the new blog)!

Let me know what you think of the idea! x

The Sterrys: Tuesday night is music night

Hannah and John Sterry from "The Sterrys" jazz trio.

The 25th of September marks the last Tuesday Night is Music Night of this year and I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone at The Cottage Hotel, on behalf of The Sterrys, because we’ve had an amazing time.

It’s been great fun playing at The Cottage Hotel every week this summer and we’ve met some wonderful people, tasted some absolutely amazing food and really enjoyed playing to such a nice group of people.

Here are a few photos to sum up the wonderful time we’ve had here:

Having fun with the folk harp (sometimes accompanied by Joe on flute).

I’m not sure how much we raised, but have been told it was a success!

We even had time for a quick photo opportunity as the sun was setting!

In summary, we’ve had an absolutely amazing time with everyone who’s visited or worked at the hotel.

This is probably the best way to illustrate it:

Thank you to everyone who’s come and supported us,

I really hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have!

Best wishes,
