Worcester Music Festival – A Brief History of Stress and Gratitude.

Posted on Updated on

When ‘The Big Book of Worcester Who’s Who’ is written (you never know, it might one day) I hope the authors will find it in their hearts to include the following as a lasting reminder of a small town boy who dared to dream. 

“In 2007 I had a dream. A dream that would bring musicians, venues, music lovers and the general public together in a festival of love, appreciation and enjoyment of live music whilst helping those less fortunate than ourselves. This dream was a dream I dreamt and foolishly tried to make it reality. And a reality it became, born with the co-operation of like-minded people my dream was fulfilled and I could live my life knowing that I had achieved something, and I saw that it was good.”

That is what I hope they’ll print.

In reality I probably won’t get a mention or possibly, if I’m lucky, they’ll write
“Chris Bennion, nice guy, put on a few gigs, called it Worcester Music Festival and then gave up.”

The Secret Ingredient Is …

Posted on Updated on

img_1093Here’s a sentence that not many people can say. “I have a job that I enjoy.”

Yes, you heard right. I actually enjoy my job. Okay so there are days when I could quite happily walk out, catch a bus to the coast and stare into nothingness and forget about work for  month, but doesn’t everyone and there are of course  times that I have not enjoyed work. Things may have gone wrong or some people may have rubbed me the wrong way, but the fact remains, I do enjoy my job. Read the rest of this entry »

Schrödinger’s Europe

Posted on Updated on

So, who knows exactly what will happen if we leave the EU?
Not long now until the big decision. One that could change our very way of life. A choice that if we make the wrong one could disrupt our way of living, cost us millions of pounds in lost business, result in the possible outbreak of World War 3 and begin the ultimate downfall of a once great country.

Or everything could stay exactly the same, or get slightly better or maybe slightly worse.

There are always at least two sides to an argument. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted on Updated on

PCC HUSTINGS AT THE CAP N GOWN, WORCESTER.

Imagine a job that you had to convince the public that you are the right man (or woman) to do the job for the next 3 (or maybe 6 if they do well) years. And imagine if you had to meet some of the public to convince them you were the best candidate… in a pub

Well, the police and crime commissionaire for Worcestershire job is up for grabs and 6 people have stepped into the ring ready to battle it out.

To block or not to block. That is the question ?

Posted on Updated on

Recently I have been thinking of having a Facebook Friend cull but I’m the sort of person that hates to hurt people’s feeling. I hate arguing and will do my best to help anyone who needs help if I can  Hell, if I go a different route in the car to what the sat nav is telling me I feel guilty and have even apologise to it. Yes, I’m that nice.

I have been blocked / unfriended on Facebook in the past by a couple of people. That’s two people, maybe more, that I have annoyed in some way. Not sure what I did wrong but I have to admit that I was a little hurt.

So how do you unfriend someone nicely and should you feel guilty when you do it.  Read the rest of this entry »

s about time that I found out …
Six months. That’s how much time I have had to prepare for a day of looking after my son. Not that I haven’t looked after him before. I have. Many times, but I have always had the assurance that my wife was just a room away, or a street away or at least in the same city. Today was different. She was in another county with very little phone signal. Read the rest of this entry »
