So happy, got a new JOB!

That’s me back to being happy again! While out cycling, I got the phone call to say that I passed the driver driving assessment, yesterday and they would like to offer me the job!

It’s another Customer Delivery Driver job, for a well knowing UK supermarket! So can’t want to start!!!

The Statue Wars: One Summer in Bristol (BBC 2/HD | 9:00pm to 10:00pm | Thursday 10th June 2021)

On Sunday, June 7, 2020, protestors marching to support the Black Lives Matter movement tore down the statue of slave trader Edward Colston and threw it in Bristol’s harbour. Caught in the eye of this storm was Bristol’s mayor Marvin Rees, the first directly elected mayor of Black African heritage of a major European city. Born and bred in Bristol and himself a descendant of enslaved people, how would he hold the city together in the face of rising tensions that threaten to explode into violent confrontation?
