New and newsworthy
Moving house, moving site – any move – can be tricky. You make plans, map out the space and decide where the furniture goes. It’s only when you’ve moved in and you’ve lived with it for a while, do you get an idea of what really works. So, this was the year of the move. Of stepping off, jumping in, setting things up and trying things out at Boughton.
Although based in England, Greenbelt has enjoyed long and important links with Scotland – its artists and thinkers, its theologians and its spirituality. And that’s why the up-coming Scottish Independence Referendum is just as much a matter for those of us south of the border as those north of it.
We believe that children should learn about debt and credit in schools and from their family, not from lenders advertising on television.
Are you stuck in a literary rut? Not sure where to look to find your new favourite author? Would you like to read poetry but don’t know where to start? Or perhaps you’re travelling somewhere new and would like to be recommended some companions to read along the way?
