I enjoyed an evening at the Chorley Theatre where Bridget Christie performed her stand-up show ‘Who Am I?’. She covered many topics including life, bringing up her children and the menopause. It takes skill to make those funny. It also takes a lot of stamina to perform the show on an almost daily basis all over the UK on her 3 month tour. She is doing 2 sell-out nights at Chorley and the only other 2 show venue was Norwich.

It was the first time at Chorley Theatre that the show was simultaneously transcribed by the stenographer Claire Hill and the text displayed in real time on a screen at the side of the stage. This was for those with hearing problems.

This morning I had my usual 6 monthy dental checkup at Whittle Dental Practice. My dentist there is Dr David Melia but sadly this is the last time he will be checking my teeth. David retires in a few weeks and his original partner Chris Reid retired a few weeks ago. They set up Whittle Dental Practice over 30 years ago and the new owner will be Dr. Christos Anagnostou who is another dentist.

Today’s Whittle & Clayton-le-Woods Remembrance Sunday procession and service was held under an overcast sky after heavy rain. Fortunately the rain stopped as many people turned up for the service by the War Memorial to remember the sacrifice made by those in previous wars and conflicts. The procession was held along the footpath and afterwards in St John’s Church for hot drinks and biscuits.
