This weeks #winterwarmerwednesday is by poet Charley Genever for the East Anglia region.

 

Charley, previously Peterboroigh Poet Laureate loves pubs, they are where she cut her teeth as a performer at open mic nights.  She wrote “Down the Local”  as she wanted to focus on fondly remembering one of many nights out, and relive that memory in the poem, celebrating how pubs really do champion communities.  Find out more here
