Now one of the pioneering mission statements of Up Your Street was to get seniors online and using it. I still get messages from subscribers saying they cannot access a web site for example. In the case of  East London Radio. Go to your search engine, often Google or Bing, and write “East London Radio”. The website will pop up and then you will see an arrow indicating “Play radio” and you’re in. There are catch up pod casts.
Made In Hackney. Same procedure. William Morris Gallery.  Same.
Advance notice. In March I will be exhibiting my art called “Champions” at Hackney Central Library and at Stratford Picture House, “Headscarves 1950s”both celebrating International Women’s Day because I can.
And art by women begins on March 8th at Tower Gallery Plaistow for International Women’s Day. “Lily At The Swim” will be there.

Issue 1. Up Your Street. 2014

 

A rotten year gone
Prune back for new growth
Forward with all pistons
Into the fray. Stay true
