My Nan Wilson used to play a lot of Bingo and did win sometimes.

Molly Sutcliffe 2 years ago

So true, I am just thinking about all the times that 'black mirror' has sat upon the table during a conversation - almost looking like a black hole... I wonder how much of a conversation gets sucked into it?!

I've been involved in projects that have got funding from both the Main Grants Programme and the High Sheriff of Gloucestershire's Fund. Would either of these be good for what you're doing?
