Edward Bulwer-Lytton probably thought of himself as a right old smarty pants, and not just because of the double-barrelled surname. The novelist, playwright and all round clever clogs first coined the phrase ‘The pen is …

Mikey Boy and the Time to Talk

As I sat parked up, I had flash backs to when I entered his house in the days after his death. His closest friends, inseparable from childhood, were unable to re-enter after they had been the ones to find him upstairs.

The OFs – better than quinoa

The ‘baddies’ have gone and we can finally sing the chorus of Dirty Old Town and truly mean it, can’t we?

People being brought together through a shared love. Love of a football club, of Manchester, of music, of the NHS and of our fellow human beings regardless of which side of arbitrary borders they are born on.

He’ll be able to spend his Saturday afternoons with like-minded people. He will hopefully make new friends, and make memories in his teenage years that will be remembered forever. For someone who hasn’t had the best start in life, that is quite beautiful when you think about it.
