Thoughts from October 2006

the force is strong with this one


Seeing as it's half term, we're going to be at Chessington World of Adventures from Wednesday 25th to Friday 27th October, giving out drinks and dancing around in our new carton outfits.

Excitingly, there seems to be a bit of a Star Wars theme down there at the moment. They've even got a Jedi Training Academy, which is very exciting.

It just so happens that we've got two tickets to the park to give away, so the person who sends us the best photo of them and their kids doing some Jedi training by the end of Thursday (26th) can have the tickets. Send photos to this email address - good luck.

walls of wool


Tansy's sister Lettice has been doing some cool things with wool. According to Lettice it was a performance piece to ‘disrupt the urban flow and distract people from their everyday’ as part of her architecture degree. It’s part of a longer term project to design an arts centre in Cambridge.

Even better news, at least for us, is that after the distraction, all of the wool has gone to grannies and knitting groups in Cambridge so that we can get some more Supergran hats. Thanks Lettice.


how to be an entrepreneur

We're all in favour of a bit of entrepreneurial spirit, so we're glad to link to Make Your Mark, a campaign that is endeavouring to create a culture of enterprise amongst those aged 14-20 across the UK.

The website enables people to list and promote any events that they are organising and there's a blog to help people learn a bit more and spread the word.

That's all for now.
