My Diary Week Ending 1st October 2017
It was the week of Macmillan Cancer Support Coffee mornings.
Firstly amid the very positive atmosphere at The Labour Party Conference I caught up with Macmillan amongst talk of how upbeat Jeremy Corbyn and Labour’s message is on health, the economy and the future of Britain. So that was good fun.
Back in Scunthorpe I joined the fabulous Kimberley Performing Arts Centre Group for their busy coffee morning before catching up with my team and the gang at Park Square side by side with my surgery and their Macmillan Coffee Morning! Finally as I pottered round a busy Scunthorpe Market supporting customers and traders in their fight to Save Scunthorpe Market I saw another Macmillan Coffee Morning. So much good work by so many people. There were even people running in Macmillan shirts at this week’s Scunthorpe Park Run. And these were just the ones I saw. There are many, many I missed such as that at Howsham I spotted on twitter too late to get there and join in. Thank you to everyone involved in supporting Macmillan across the area. Your work makes a real difference in the fight against cancer locally and nationally.
I had an excellent walk round the Foundry shopping area on a sunny afternoon with the town centre full of shoppers and busy shops. I also caught up with the busy butchers on Frodingham Road. A reminder of the great shopping choices we have locally. It was also good to be updated on how things are going at the steelworks when I called in there. And it was fantastic to join the students graduating from their 4 week NCS - National Citizen Service at our fantastic The Baths Hall. A reminder of the fantastic talent there is amongst our young people. So much positive hope for the future.
My son’s band The Crookes did an emotional farewell concert in a packed Sheffield's The Leadmill after 10 years of giving great enjoyment to loads of people. And it was good to see another home grown talent Sumudu playing with Snake Davis at the Ropery Hall, Barton upon Humber to complete the week.
