Pink Lady

After The Scrutiny Committee on Friday Keith popped in to the Lord Mayor's Parlour to support the Lady Mayoress's Breast Cancer awareness day. This involved Sandra turning the fountain in Victoria Square pink. The fountain has a statue of a naked woman in it and is known locally as "The floozy in the jacuzzi".
Sue had already dashed in earlier but had to get back to Northfield Fire Station for a passing out parade for youngsters on a Junior Firefighters scheme. They all seemed to have really enjoyed it and it looks as if it will be done again.
That evening we went to the NIA for a performance of "La Traviata". A spectacular opera featuring about 10 pupils from Colmers School who had previously trained and performed in Verona along with about 300 other people. There were about 5000 people in the audience and they all enjoyed themselves.
Next week sees Keith at an Executive Management Team away day which involves staying overnight at Warwick University for some heavy duty discussions on the future plans and finances of the Council. Then on Wednesday it is down to London for a conference on "Every disabled child matters". Hopefully he can get back for a meeting of the Egghill development Group whilst Sue goes to the Frankley HLB.
