Wonka Sightings, Plus Outpourings of Compassion and Forgiveness

On this week’s edition of the show, Laura Bill and Matt Adams from The Herts Advertiser talk about the filming of Wonka in Verulamium Park, St Albans’ response to the Ukraine crisis, and a moving demonstration of forgiveness from a church in Harpenden.

If you would like to donate to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal, you can do so here.

Also on the show this week we get the latest book recommendations from regular correspondent Clare Hobba.  Here are her choices for March:

A spool of Blue Thread – Ann Tyler, 2015
Anything is Possible – Elizabeth Strout, 2017
Excellent Women – Barbara Pym, 1952
