Good People - Different Places
Colleagues, a great way to end the week and just about to head off for a few days in the sun. Finished the week with UNISON activists (below) at Wolverhampton Acute NHS Trust. Like all other colleagues in the public sector these fine women and men face tremendous challenges ahead but will of course do their very best to defend the interests of their members. I was hugely impressed by the significant degree of knowledge and experience these reps had - a tribute to the British labour movement. And then from on to the wedding (see the two pics below) of my nephew Stephen to Deborah in Manchester. What great weather for a wonderful wedding. All of the Manborde family were there and we had (as Manborde's do at parties) a fantastic time. Such a pity that we don't get the chance to do this more often. What a great way to end the Spring term at Ruskin College and move forward into the Summer period. If only I could spend all of my time like this! Ian.
