Dear Readers and Advertisers 
Is a catastrophe coming? No fuel to put on the bonfires on firework night could be it! Perhaps folk aren’t going tocommemorate the Gunpowder Plot anyway. Several bonfire societies have folded and there doesn’t seem to bethe enthusiasm abroad for traditional events like there used to be. Could this be another effect brought on by thegreat societal hiccup caused by the pandemic? It is taking a long time for many things to get back to normal. Willnormal ever be the same and do people want it to be? Maybe it will take well into next year before stability returnsand life both at home, work and education adjusts to the new norms. In the meantime don’t forget to light afirework for old Guy Fawkes and remember that Halloween has just gone but Christmas is on the winter horizon

Another way is to lose yourself in a great show at a great arena.
