25th, 26th & 27th APRIL 2012 THREE DAYS THREE ENGAGEMENTS


THREE ENGAGEMENTS OVER THREE DAYS, AS I TRY TO CATCH UP WITH MY BLOG DUE TO BUSY SCHEDULE.

WEDNESDAY 27th APRIL, TEA IN THE CASTLE

Today we attended another teas in the castle for people who were visiting the castle between 2pm and 4pm. One couple who we invited came from or is a British National who now lived in Dubai. see picture below.

We had an interesting chat as about 40 years ago I worked in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, but it was sort of not like it is now when I was there, yet they told me that there are still the same type of Adobe homes around the outside of the main towns as of old.

The new Dubi is I was told a place that if you are away for ten days and return you will find that the road has moved or a new hotel is being built where something else was when you left.

Our guest worked in the oil industry and found that Dubai was central to his business world and an easy place to travel to and from.

Maybe one day I will go back and see all of these strange new designs that they have come up with. Maybe I will win the lottery.

 

THURSDAY 26th APRIL, TOWN COUNCIL MEETING

This evening we held the annual Shrewsbury Town Council Meeting, where the residents of Shrewsbury have the chance to attend and ask questions of the Council and for the Council to inform them of what we are doing, to  answer any Concerns, Issues or Problems the residents may have.

Two members of the public turned up so we took it that most of our residents are happy with the way that Shrewsbury Town Council is being run and that therew were no real big issues to be addressed.

 

FRIDAY 27th APRIL 2012 MAYOR OF TELFORDS ANNUAL BALL

Tonight we attended the Mayor of Telfords ball at Buildwas. I had been working at the Telford Crucial Crew Event yesterday and today and that was also at Buildwas so I seemed to know the route quite well.

The evening went really well and we had a great time we took away more than we arrived with as we bought some items in the silent auction, yet we did not do well in the raffle. Seeing we had an early start the next day we could not stay to late and once the disco started we headed for home. But we had a really good night thanks to Christine and Malcolm.
