Since I arrived back from our holiday in Cuba on Monday [some preliminary notes here], I’ve had a furiously busy week with events morning, afternoon and evening every day.
The three evening events have all been public meetings on post office closures which I have had to address as the Chairman of the Greater London Region of Postwatch. The meetings were held in a social club in Redbridge, a council office in Hammersmith and a Pentecostal church in Battersea respectively. All of them were fraught and emotional occasions.
I’m off with Vee now to spend the weekend in South Wales. Our son Richard is getting married to his partner Emily tomorrow in a hotel just north of Newport. It promises to be another emotional, but much happier, occasion.
