  2. If the Cabinet has anything to do with it then it's more likely to be Community GAFFES!

  3. Ah! Soh! May I humbly suggest Tea ceremony - under a flowering Cherry tree - in an Allotment Site - culminating in a Tea Street ceremony under the Cherry trees!

    The Japanese tea ceremony (cha-no-yu, chado, or sado) is a traditional ritual influenced by Zen Buddhism in which powdered green tea, or matcha (抹茶), is ceremonially prepared by a skilled practitioner and served to a small group of guests in a tranquil setting.
    Cha-no-yu (茶の湯, literally "hot water for tea"), usually refers to a single ceremony or ritual, while sado or chado (茶道, or "the way of tea") refer to the study or doctrine of tea ceremony.

    Since a tea practitioner must be familiar with the production and types of tea, with kimono, calligraphy, flower arranging, ceramics, incense and a wide range of other disciplines and traditional arts in addition to his or her school's tea practices, the study of tea ceremony takes many years and often lasts a lifetime. Even to participate as a guest in a formal tea ceremony requires knowledge of sado, including the prescribed gestures and phrases expected of guests, and the proper way to take tea and sweets, and general deportment in the tea room.

  4. This is a Primary Care Trust initiative, which the University of East London has been asked to run.

    The idea is to involve people and get their ideas as to how they can live healthier lives, to relieve pressure on health services and enhance their own quality of life.

    I am trying to stifle cynical thoughts that it will turn into a pensioners' moanfest.
