As much as I’d love to do have Starving in a Garret open three days a week, I can only manage three hours on Saturday mornings at the moment due to my work commitments. But that’s life these days, isn’t it? We are all busy people and the trick is keeping all the balls in the air. That’s why I’m looking for volunteers to add a few hours to the time we can stay open.
I’ve also been away the last two Saturdays, the first for family and the second to attend a publishing workshop which was an exciting experience. It will be nice to sit quietly on Saturday, 18th May, the third session of Starving in a Garret and catch my breath.
I am still making enquiries in regards to rounding up would-be historians. I’m afraid it is as I feared – a real lack of people willing to do the work of interviewing our elderly residents on a volunteer basis. I’m sure I can track down a few though! I am meeting with Vicki Williamson from Eastlakes Historical Society this Saturday afternoon to discuss ways and means. Wish me luck and maybe pop in to see me this Saturday between 10am-1pm and say hello!
