Dear Kate, Happy Christmas to you ! It was lovely to see you at the Course reunion. Charles

We are having some spectacular dawns up here in the north, from where many good wishes and thanks for the year’s posts.

Dear Leslie, Thank you for the advice about Intangible Cultural Heritage. I will investigate. Happy Christmas from Wales, Charles
