  • Wrote 'Community Arts Review' script to record tomorrow for broadcast Sunday and Monday evening on Radio Maldwyn. Plugged the Concerts Coach that runs to Birmingham Symphony Hall from Shrewsbury, next weekend's concert in St Mary's Welshpool for Macmillan Cancer relief, Newtown ADS play next week (Agatha Cristie's 'A Murder is Announced'). Voluntary Arts Wales wants to start A Powys Arts Forum, free workshops run by Montgomery Community Drama Association (Youth Theatre and Lighting). Many interruptions, people still phoning to swap earthquake stories from last Sunday - we felt nothing!

  • I was met by my mum and we went and bought train tickets from the station, as I'm going to Birmingham this Saturday. I'm a representative of Quaker Youth Theatre on the committee for the Leaveners a Quaker (religious) charity for music and drama in a creative and Quaker context. It is a committee meeting to discuss projects, finances, new posts etc. I was voted on the committee as one of three young Quaker representatives at a re-union met last year. I've been going to Quaker meeting since I was very young - about 3 - with my parents, and although I do not have any strong religious beliefs, I do agree with their core values of non-violence, that there is goodness or good in everyone and in equality and respect for all. The youth events are lots of fun, and I enjoy dance so going on Leaveners events is great.

  • Met a friend in town who brought us up to date on his new venture at Craig Y Nos Castle - putting on operas in the castle's beautiful old theatre on a regular basis.

  • As Chairman of Llangynidr Local History Society I was acting as site manager of an archaeological investigation in the supposed medieval village of Llangynidr - on Pesondy field.

    September 24th was the penultimate day of a 3 ½ week dig, authorised by CADW and the National Parks.

    My role was to facilitate the work by co-ordinating resources - personnel and equipment - as well as being actively involved in trowel work; washing labelling and bagging artefacts found on site and subsequently restoring the excavated soil and turf at the end of the process. In the course of the day all of the above were carried out.
