Gazette column: If we don’t look out for each other, what else do we have left?

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about running, accidents and helping someone in trouble, because if we don’t look out for each other, what on earth do we have left?

What do you think? Let me know.

Gazette column: Why a stroke shouldn’t take away the person underneath

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” (today out on a Friday…) where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about strokes and getting older and how, as with our Nanna, we all have to help and remember that every one deserves to be treated as the person they are.

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Is the care provision for people suffering from strokes enough? Does the system care for the elderly sufficiently? Should we all do more to help? Let me know.

Gazette column: Should pubs be at the heart of our communities?

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly Gazette newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is about pubs, and specifically the Full Moon pub in Wotton, and I ask if pubs should really be the centre of our communities – and if we’re suffering from a case of double standards .

To read it, simply click to my Column page.

What do you think? Should pubs be at the heart of the community? Or should we have central, shared – no alcohol – spaces? Or, quite simply, does it really not matter? Let me know.
