The Paul Rogers Blog: Time to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee
IT seems that you don’t have to travel far at the moment without seeing a Union Jack flag being hung outside a window or bunting lining the streets.
Last week, thousands of people turned out to witness the Olympic torch going through Herefordshire and now another historic occasion is to be celebrated this weekend.
Towns and villages from four corners of the county are to hold events to mark the event, whether it be street or tea parties or live music and I think it’s fantastic that communities have joined together to ensure that residents have a day to remember.
I don’t proclaim to be a big Royalist by any means, but I am proud to be British and think that we should celebrate the Queen being on the throne for so many years.
She is probably the most famous person in the world and has done some great things for our country, and let’s be honest, being Queen of a country for 60 years is a fantastic occasion. So hopefully, the weather will continue to be stay warm and dry and everyone can enjoy a great weekend of celebrations/.
God save our greatest Queen, long live… ok I’ll stop now!!!
Elsewhere, I want to thank The Courtyard for holding their first comedy festival last weekend, called CourtLaughing.
It was well received by a lot of people who attended and saw seem great acts from Jon Richardson, to John Challis and Michael Winslow.
I was a judge for an open mic competition and overall I was impressed by the standard of entries, particularly as for some it was their first ever gig.
Well done to the winner, Phil Pearcy, who gets a 10 to 15 minute slot at one of the Courtyard’s comedy nights.
The Courtyard have been attracting some great names recently and it’s good to see some variety acts.
I saw Paul Daniels last night, who was really entertaining, as was his support act Kev Orkian.
Considering that all you seem to hear is doom and gloom at the moment, it’s nice to go out sometimes and just laugh.
There is no doubt that he has a tough job on his hands following the Bulls’ relegation from the Football League and will be restricted as to who he can buy.
The last two years have been nothing short of disastrous at Edgar Street, but Foyle has shown that he’s got the criteria to be successful at Hereford, so let’s hope that is the case.
