Good afternoon,

Welcome to Signpost 32. This week we begin to get in to the festive spirit, exploring the meaning of advent and listening to some Christmas music! If you would like to contribute to the next issue, please get in touch.

84 years ago this week Crystal Palace burned down, 41 years ago this week Pink Floyd released their album “The Wall”, and 65 years ago this week Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat on a bus in Montgomery, Alabama.
