3rd November 2016

Good evening everyone,

Well today was a bit of a crappy day with some good news.

It started with me getting going a bit later than I would have liked and heading out to find two memorials in Bleadon that I couldn't find yesterday, on the way to the church (less than a mile away) I picked up a puncture in the worst wheel possible, the front, Its the one wheel I can't change on my own, the front needs jacking up and the pin that goes through needs two people one to line up and the other to push the pin through. Not a good start! It also had a knock on for what I could get done for the rest of the day...

I found the two memorials I couldn't find yesterday and then the next church at Loxton had three memorials as recorded and I couldn't find one of them, there was an up side, the one memorial on display appears to be unrecorded.

I pottered on and was late back to the cats and didn't get everything I wanted done :(

The Good News

The staff and volunteers at the Imperial War Museum War Memorial Register collected a national award for contributions to the national register of UK war memorials and the names they commemorate.

The award was granted by RememberWW1, a not-for-profit campaign that celebrates the huge effort made by volunteers in inspiring others to commemorate the centenary of the First World War: http://ow.ly/r00P305LSWj

Thank you to whoever nominated us and thank you for the award :)

I did find an interesting bit of street art today.
