I can't believe I haven't joined up before - costs £5 for a year's membership, and then £3 or £6 to fill a bag with vast quantities of craft materials. They also sell some crafting supplies at a fraction of the cost of getting them in the shops - 1 litre of PVA glue for a pound! I didn't have any money on me, but we bumped into Sarah, Jo and Charlie, and Sarah signed up there and then, so we shared a big bag. They get their supplies from factories and retailers, so they were even giving away books! We are going to be taking a family trip sometime next week....

The hated IMAX cinema has been pulled down, and in it's place the Council has developed an outdoor Arts Space, with lots of free concerts and performances.

Some benches have been installed, quite far back from the stage; I suspect to allow for people to sit on the floor in the front, but today it just meant there was plenty of room for some free-dance.
