What a week in Southsea and I can tell you a few things I've been to this week to show you just how busy this place can be.
On Tuesday afternoon the St James' Hospital in Locksway Road officially opened The Limes, a facility to care and treat elderly dementia patients. It's a beautiful building and surrounding which clearly had been designed carefully with the patients welfare in mind. The staff were gentle and caring. In fact, everyone I met made me feel that the patients could not ask for a better care. Thumbs up for Portsmouth!
On Wednesday the University of Portsmouth officially opened the new Dental Academy in partnership with King's College London. Again, a beautifully designed building. Earl Howe officiated and the event was attended by the great and the goods in the city. A really good celebration and good news for dental health in Portsmouth.
Thursday night saw a glittering evening at the Spinnaker Tower to launch "Portsmouth in Poetry", a collection of poems written about Portsmouth. Dale Gunthorpe and Julie Millard are the people behind the Spinnaker Press who had compiled the book. Congratulations to them for putting together a wonderful evening of poetry and all the best with the book.
It's been an exciting week for me also meeting up with Twitter friends. On Saturday I was watching my first football match in Fratton Park. I'm sure many Pompey friends would be proud of me. Why did I take so long? And thanks to @PompeyNev for encouraging me to go. We can report that pork sausages are great for half-time snacks!
And Sunday was a blissfull day even if the weather was beginning to take a drizzly and blowy turn. I walked all along the seafront to see @creatiques Wedding Show at the Royal Beach Hotel. They have put together a roomful of talented people with unique offerings for the modern brides.
I will soon write about these amazing business people and their wonderful gift to turn a bride's day into a memorable one.
I hope you week has been good too!
