This morning I made a foot tall Bradford City hat out of a straw hat, a towel, and a bit of the box the last but two printer came in. Including cutting the box and ironing and sewing up the towel it took me 26 minutes!

I did the hat to lead another Bradford walk, this one with Dave Pendleton, the man with the info. It was the start of Bantam’s History Week, and the walk was my suggestion.

A dozen people showed up. and we collected £85 for the Burns Unit (if you cannot think why we collected for them then please read some Bradford City history).

It went brilliantly well, and “i am not just saying that because a gorgeous young woman called Kath did the walk and then bought me beer. No! REALLY!!

We started at the Turls Green, had a pint in the Midland, and finished at The Sparrow Beir Cafe, where Bradford City Chairman Mark Lawn pulled a pint of Baine’s Bitter, brewed in memory of the first ever football collectors cards, which were printed in Bradford.

I then went and saw City win a league game, so guaranteeing a place in the play-offs.

Bradford City Chairman Mark Lawn, the astonishingly good looking Kath, and Glyn Watkins holding a beer bought by Kath, and wondering when he would wake up!
