Saw a copy of the Portobello Reporter today. Portobello Central and our plans are on the front page along with parking, the Book Festival and the Art Walk. Nice wee article. Always good to get the news in paper form. This community paper, coming out quarterly, is really valued by me as a record of local life and events, even if I never seem to get a copy through our letter box!
The main Portobello Central group met last night on Zoom but I was at the Playhouse experiencing live music from Nick Cave. It was Loud and Beautiful! Vaccination certificates were needed to enter, along with masks when moving around. I actually kept mine on for the performance. I’m fairly used to them. It was much more crowded than the gig at the Usher Hall the other week – seated – with every seat taken and they were totty wee theatre seats (my knees were touching the seat back in front of me). No denying that big a crowd felt weird. Wonderful but weird. Will need to see how it plays out with regard to Covid. Safely, I hope. Feeling the music – physically in my body and stomach – was lovely.
Will need to read the Finance report and CV sifting document guide document from yesterday’s meeting today to be up to speed again.
