Lucienne Day is one of the greatest designers this country has ever produced. This year would have been her 100th birthday. When I learned that she and her husband, Robin, were design consultants to the John Lewis Partnership it seemed the perfect story for Waitrose Weekend. See if you agree!
Anyone who knows me will know how obsessed I am with public art. So I was delighted when Waitrose Weekend agreed to publish a lengthy piece on the Twentieth Century Society’s Campaign to record and save Britain’s murals. And even more delighted to learn that the John Lewis Partnership itself included murals among it’s many pieces of commissioned artwork.
Amy is an extremely special person who has not only fought off the darkest depression but also formed a swimming group to encourage others to try and do the same. I was privileged to be able to tell her story in Waitrose Weekend
Always love writing for Waitrose Weekend and particularly enjoyed this piece, highlighting the great work of the Froglife charity, which looks after the interests of the UK’s 13 species of reptiles and amphibians.
Always wanted to write for this lovely mag and now I have! My piece on how to become a batman – or woman – was published in this week’s edition. With thanks to the wonderful Bat Conservation Trust
