Last week was my third year anniversary of writing Wayne's World and those three years have really flown by! I celebrated by taking the week off from writing and had a lovely relaxing weekend with my Val.

Until COVID-19 hit, I have visited every part of our amazing borough, attended numerous events, fundraisers and ceremonies and always tried to highlight all the amazing things, people and places that we have here in Trafford.

To be honest, it has been quite a challenge to keep this column going through another lockdown with nothing happening in the community and no entertainment to write about. Stuck behind the same four walls doesn't make for an interesting read but I have tried

to keep it interesting and I hope you've continued to enjoy it. As we ease out of lockdown and with events being lined up, I'm sure we will be back on track soon!

I feel truly honoured to be able to write to you each week and I really do appreciate all of your support over the past three years. It is an absolute privilege to have our weekly chat and I want to thank each and every one of you for not just reading my

column but for your friendship and support. Thank you.

I was recently asked if I would join local photographer Graham Barber in judging a competition for the Friends of Chassen Park.

They were having a competition to find a new logo and it was no easy task to go through all the amazing entries to pick out a single winner. I wished we could have chosen two or three winners as they were all that good but we eventually, after a lot of deliberation,

chose a lovely logo that we felt summed up the park perfectly, created by Fiona Redfern, which you can see in this week's photograph.

Very well done Fiona and thank you so much to the Friends of Chassen Park for inviting me to be a judge in your competition. I wish them all the very best in the great work they are doing for our local park.

I work extremely hard to achieve certain things in life and when I succeed I feel quite proud. I also get that same sense of pride when someone I know succeeds in their ambitions.

Recently my good friend Jeremy Blain, who is a great supporter of my community website 'All About Trafford', fullfilled his long held ambition to be a published author and I feel so proud for him in reaching his goal.

Jeremy's first published book 'The Inner CEO' is available now from all book stores in paperback and available on Amazon as an eBook. Well done Jeremy!

To finish, thank you again for all of your support for my 24 hour Swing-a-thon that I held at Mulino in Urmston. The final total raised was an amazing £8,597. All money has now gone to the Alzheimer's Society and will be put to great use. Thank you!

See you next week!
