When I got there, the shop was shut and 3 students waiting for it to open. And the bumping around in the trays had damaged some of the pears, which was a pity. I'll have to find a better way to transport them. One of the students found a porter who unlocked the door and let me put the pears and dried fruit in the room, and then locked up again. Apparently the shop was short-staffed as quite a few students had gone to London to the 'stop privatising education' march.
I went home via a logpile and then went to have a coffee with my friend Julie B, which extended into lunch. I got back in good time to go to Country Fresh and then on to the Guildhall to attend the Environment Forum meeting at 4.30. I got there at about 4, and got a very rude haranguing from the caretaker who said 'what would happen if I got injured in the room before the meeting?' All I was doing was sitting reading quietly. Ridiculous man!
The EF meeting was good.... a presentation from Matt Barker from the City Car Club, a car-share scheme.
Then there was an update about Treemendous York, and following that, a chat with Professor Alan Simpson, who authored the 'York: New City Beautiful' report last year.
Nothing much happened in the evening.
