Love Without Borders

Our perfimg_3767ormance at St Martin’s Church on 12th November love-thy-neighbour-flierbegan with a call from 3 master drummers and members of WWB handing out leaflets outside of the church to members of the public to invite them into what has to be (in my img_6610opinion) or best ever group performance.

By noon we were all in place and ready to go. Paul from the church introduced WWB and our link with the Birmingham wide Loveimg_6613 Your Neighbour initiative.

Sue Brown, our group leader introduced the group; its background, its members, its past performances and set this one in context.

Then the performances began. Poetry, prose, music, song and dance. Each piece moving in its own way. There were some stunning performances. Everyone stepped up a notch or two to deliver a cohesive performance that really showed what WWB is all about.

When we all came together on stage to sing the final part of the chorus ‘There is more that unites us than that which divides us’ and to take our bow… there was at least one person giving us a standing ovation.img_3805

Massive thanks to all the people who travelled far and wide to come and see us. Your presence was greatly appreciated. You were such a warm and encouraging audience.

Massive thanks also to Sue Brown for her patience in helping us to hone our performance skills. We couldn’t have done it without you.

These are some of the times when I am pleased, proud and happy to be a member of the wonderful Writers Without Borders.

About David Rollason

I am a writer, creative, inventive, observant, but the results are for you the reader to decide. There are things in my head constantly that I need to get out and into a readable form and this for now is my preferred medium. I am a simple being with complex workings. I am a complex being with simple logic. I am really just..... me.

    Thank you David for your wonderful coverage of the event. Although the weather prevented a more robust attendance it was an appreciative audience that made the occasion ‘special’ We have excelled once more. Well dome WWB. Continue to grow. Your Long distance member – Kitty

  2. This was really a great occasion. From the write up, one could feel moved and what more of those who were present. Courage to all the members of the writers without boarders.
