As many of you will already know, Lawrence’s Mum died suddenly and unexpectedly early on Saturday morning.

Even though Lawrence and I have been good friends since Nightshift days, I never had the pleasure of meeting his Mum.  But from my contact with him, I know that Lawrence was lucky enough to have a Mum who was, amongst all the other things Mums are, his best friend; a rare and precious relationship.

Please remember Lawrence in your thoughts over the coming days.  Better still, get in touch with him if you can - perhaps on Facebook. 

Love knows not it’s own depth until the hour of separation....

The road ahead will not be easy, Lawrence, but there are those around you who love you and will not let you fall.

Take care, my friend.


Our next AGM will take place at 1100 on Thursday 17 May.  If this date is hopelessly inconvenient for you, please get in touch.

A number of venues suggest themselves:  the Newcastle Art Centre on Westgate Road, Saltwell Park in Gateshead, Birkheads Nursery, the Tanfield Railway and others.  If you have any favourites, contact me.
