Just a brief episode to bring listeners up to speed on developments with the Woolsack project. There has been a lot of media coverage this week, so I thought I would round it up for you.... oh and brag about meeting the GB Women's Watr Polo squad in Manchester!
That's me, lurking at the back, third in from the right (the pink's almost washed out in this shot), along with most of the squad and six cushion makers from Tattenhall, near Chester. The squad loved their cushions!
These cuties were made by Chloe Wilcox's mum, and the girls love them!
