Our Next Meeting

Time is flying by and already our next meeting rapidly approaches. To be held this coming Tuesday 2nd June at the Cafe Libra, Felixstowe Library, the 1,500 open themed work will be undertaken by Morag and Connie whilst “MEMORY” is the topic for the 500 word homework assignment.

We are reminded that time is also rapidly moving towards the deadline date for the submission of your 1,000 word story or poems for our anthology. It will be helpful if your work begins to roll in very soon otherwise Barry won't have anything to do....You can forward your work direct to barry.darnell@ntlworld.com or via our scribblers@btinternet.com address.

We hear that Denise Cogan has retired from UNESCO today but will be busy until end of year working for the UNESCO COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION http://www.unesco.org/uca/ and the UNEDSCO Former Staff Members Association. Hoping she is working down to a very peaceful life.

Our friend Chris in Cairns was interviewed by phone with a bloke called James on Radio Suffolk. He called to tell Chris that he was the ‘Foreign Correspondent’ for Radio Suffolk in Australia ! Chris was impressed, but wondred how he worked that out? He said Chris had done an interview with Rachael Stone, some years back — Chris's Mum had dobbed him in — and he was on the list!

After a bit of research Chris reported on the young POM who won the world-wide competition for the best job in the world, being the Liaison Officer for Hamilton Island Resort, at some astronomical salary.

Nice to hear that his mother is out of hospital and is alive and kicking with her 100th looming in September! Chris says hopefully he will see us then!

Incidentally his first book ‘Signing’ takes place on June 21st. In Australia. Wish him luck!

Until Tuesday,

Keep Scribbling!
