“Offer me a cup of tea”
— a message from Simon Jones, Director of Schools at The Jimmy Mizen Foundation
A new school year finds me thinking first of the one just gone : moments, faces, sounds…..
The confusion and laughter as 500 primary children formed a Giant Hand of Peace.
The relief I felt when the helicopter came…
The 15 days on the road…. Peace Car, Bus & Cloth and Lewisham’s 64 primary schools.
The laughter, children and the cloth outside Number 10.
Camilla’s face as she entered the room with David Cameron.
The Friday routine of the Safe Haven visits on Deptford High St.
Standing in the monsoon in India, caught in a blizzard in Norway, the darkness of Terezin.
The year ahead is looking even bigger than last year, nervous as I am onward — if you see me looking stressed around Lewisham offer me a cup of tea. x
Hope in young people, Peace on our streets and Positive Change in our communities.
