We have been busy as always supporting people to build their home in Brighton. Because it has been particularly cold, we helped people buy heaters and blankets and other useful things to help you get through the cold snap. It was particularly important for the men housed in Brighton by the Home Office. The houses are so poorly equipped and in at least one the boiler is on the blink that some heaters and blankets and a very long way.
A very happy Halloween to you all. It occurred to me that I almost always have a celebration for which I can wish you joy as a way of opening these newsletters. I rather like that. The festivals that I know about come from a fairly limited subset of traditions, but every tradition has its feasts. I think that is wonderful. It shows that humans, whatever their circumstances, find ways to be with each other and express joy. Winter is coming, which is big news, if true. Given the circumstances we going to need more than our average quotient of joy to make it through the dark days ahead.
