The final countdown!

July 8, 2009

Poetry lovers, we have a mere two days left to get those National Lottery Awards votes in! I may be preaching to the choir, but this is the final countdown and we need every single vote we can get to give us a chance to get to the final! The National Lottery Office were in touch to say “votes have been coming in thick and fast over the last couple of days meaning that several categories are incredibly close and every vote really will help you in the competition.  In previous years we know that these last few days really can make a difference. It’s not too late and could make all the difference to your project making it through to the next round”.

Your vote could make all the difference!

On a slightly different note, today we loitered with poetic intent at St Andrew Square Garden, giving people a side of poetry with their lunchtime sarnie. The picture up above shows our gazebo hub, where the Poetry Army perched for a minute before bringing more poems to more people. If you missed out, you’ll be able to catch us again in St Andrew Square on Wednesday 26 August from 12 – 3pm, and on Wednesday 16 September from 12 – 2pm.

And on an unashamedly unrelated note, we had another unusual visitor yesterday. Baby seagulls (though visitors initially ran the gamut of guesses from duck to massive thrush) are unable to fly, so he hung around the front of the library for most of the day, before webbling off somewhere else. But we’ve just seen him again, just round the corner, feasting on unmentionable food! Hurrah! He is safe and well. Maybe we should give him a name?
