WAKE UP TO A 14 HOUR DAY IN FRONT OF ME SO NO PRESSURE THERE THEN.
INTERVIEW WITH SAM POOLEY. OF I LOVE COMPOST.COM FAME
My first engagement of the day was a 11.00 interview with Sam Pooley at the Guildhall. She is a fantastic person who has done so0 much to make the Shrewsbury Indoor Market Hall a place we must visit every time you go to town.
My interview lasted an hour and it went really quickly. I think she really likes the Mayors Parlour with the views over the river etc. Sam runs a business in the Market Hall called Compost Kids. (Now that is a nice one recycle your children at Compost Kids.) only joking Sam. ilovecompost is a site showcasing her wares, which are all available for purchase from prints to paintings. She is also available for commissions, creative consultancy and has even been known to design and coordinate an entire event from invites to goodie bags.

Her studio is situated in the Market Hall Shrewsbury where she also runs Compost Kids, parent and toddler art workshops that run through out the year, currently on a Tuesday and Thursday morning.
INTERNATIONAL NURSES DAY AWARDING CRERTIFICATES AT OTTLEY HOUSE
My next engagement was at Ottley House Residents Care Home where I handed out certificates to nurses who work at the home as it was International Nurses Day. Below is a pictorial of those awards.
We were presented with a scrapbook covering the past two years that we had visited them first as Deputy Mayor/Mayoress and this year as Mayor and Mayoress. The Mayoress was gifted some lovely flowers and I was given a nice bottle. Thank you we have enjoyed all of our visits and we will return without the chains as the residents and staff have become part of our extended family.

SHREWSBURY AND DISTRICT SCHOOLS FA. PRIMARY SCHOOLS FINALS
The third engagement of the day I attended was to the Greenhouse Meadow for the finals of the Shrewsbury and District Schools FA Primary Schools Finals. There were both boys and girls teams playing and I have to say that the standard of play was fantastic, a credit to the young people playing and to the staff at the schools.
I would also like to Thank Shrewsbury Town Football Club on behalf of the SDSFA for allowing these finals to be played on this now a league division one pitch. Thank you. I could only stay for a couple of games as I had another engagement to attend and time was tight. But I did enjoy my time there. Last year I was able to spend all day at this event as Deputy Mayor.

Now for the official team photo shoot a real must on this special day for these youngsters.
I then had to leave so that I had chance to get ready for my last engagement of the day.
PAST MAYORS DINNER
This evening we were guests at the annual Past Mayors of Shrewsbury Dinner held at The Lord Hill Hotel. I is always nice to meet and talk with the past Mayors of our great town. They still have a great deal to offer people like myself, and the past Mayoress’s all took to Tricia and she soon felt at home. The dinner is an informal do and has a fun atmosphere about it. What a great way to end a long day of engagements.
As normal for the Lord Hill Hotel the food was great and the staff fantastic, after the meal we all went on our ways, all looking forward to next year.
