As reporter for the day I was out bright and early on the streets of Adamsdown armed with digital recorder. Job – to find out what Adamsdown thinks of Mothering Sunday. It was a real treat to meet a Mum whose first Mothering Sunday it was, and a new Dad too, carrying his little one in a papoose in front of him. Being out and about I bumped into several people I’d already met – this job is making me feel like I really belong as one of the community. (Also armed with camera for more ‘where is this’ photos – you must try out the competition – one of which is today’s photo).
Back in the Atrium David had arrived and we decided it would be best for him to do some designing and I’d edit the audio as well as writing the story. When Shanshan arrived it was good to discover that she’d attended a special Mothering Sunday event over the weekend and filmed it, and Clare thought it would be good for us to combine our pieces. So that’s gone on line, along with Geoffrey the Giraffe.
James poppped his head round the door, face all made up ready for his part in a play. He’s really busy with school children in tomorrow for radio AND a television quiz show. So I spent some time finding out what his youngsters will have studied for history (the Victorians and WW2 ) and geography (the local area) and prepared a few questions to help with the show.
Tonight at long last I’ve finished editing the community poem, Old Adamsdown, so look out for that too.
