Cake at Merseyside Polonia

Wendy and I went along to this month's Merseyside Polonia first Friday (last Friday of every month) at St Francis of Assisi Academy. We councillors have managed most months and this month only Liam was working and had to send his apologies. It was finally our turn to jump up on stage, joining the community and locally produced advice and instruction sessions, explaining what a local government councillor is and what we do.

Gosia, who leads the project and who is charming, gorgeous and delightful and puts us all to shame with her bilinguality, translated our short contribution into Polish and turned dreary discussion of bins, dog muck, lamp-posts, housing needs and housing benefit into something that sounded much more sexy. It was, as always, great to spend some time with old pals like Steve and Sheila, Siddi, Anthony, Simon, Chris and lots of others. (residents, police, RSLs etc)

Our Merseyside Polonia night is becoming a key part in our social calendar! Lovely stew this month, lovely beans and cake!
