A bit late posting this but I had a fabulous afternoon in December as a co-headliner (alongside my great friend Pat Edwards) at Word Club Christmas event held in the warm and welcoming Chemic Tavern pub in Leeds. Many, many thanks to Mark Connors and Gill Lambert for organising the event and for inviting me. What an atmosphere! And so great to spend time with fellow Yaffles Pat (& Mike!), Michael Farren, Matt Nicholson, Kathleen Strafford, Ian Harker, Terry Simpson and Linda Marshall plus so many others including Edwin Stockdale, Moira Garland, Sarah L Dixon, Andy Humphrey and Joe Williams. So many excellent poets together on an afternoon to remember.
