Dear Widcombe Association Member

Music for a Summer Evening
What a lovely evening it was! Maria Danishvar Brown introducing opera characters and then singing, beautifully, one of their songs. All in a lovely Widcombe Garden accompanied by a glass or two of Prosecco. As well as enjoyment, the evening raised funds for Widcombe improvements and £200 to the charity Unseen – which combats the scourge of modern slavery. I couldn’t help contrasting our lives with those of its victims.
Due out, first week in October. We aim to deliver a copy to every door in Widcombe so something to look out for.
Contrary to information we had been given, and signs erected there, the subway was still open yesterday when I looked. But the contractor has set up and closure looks imminent. If we have to retain this subway (rather than a signalled surface crossing) then refurbishment is plainly needed; a pity though that more attention has not been given to informing and guiding the many pedestrians who go into and out of the city centre here.
