I have been a member of Commonword’s Monday Night Group for several years. I live in South Manchester, work in the financial industry (boo!) and am counting down to retiring next year (hooray!). Besides poetry events, I enjoy birdwatching, travel, curries, good beer and rock music, and my wife occasionally drags me out on a healthy geocaching ramble as an antidote to the last three. Cake has sadly been reduced from a staple food source to an occasional treat.
