Meet the Fforganisers Part 3 - Laura

The first thing I need to tell you about Laura is that she is Welsh.  She is also invaluable to the Fforganising team.  When I said yesterday that Gill practically runs the Ffiesta that wasn't meant to denigrate the work of the other Fforganisers and Laura does a brilliant job with the publicity and the programme and stuff.  I think she is also the official keeper of President-for-Life Formby.  Even though she's welsh, and therefore from the Socialist Republic, she still has enormous respect for the great man. (Despite folding him up and fitting him her suitcase) 

Anyway, she is the only one who gave me some info about herself for this blog and it's far more interesting than anything I could make up, so all of this is true.

As a guest lecturer in Creative Writing at Oxford she once taught Sir Roger Bannister.  She's welsh, and from the same village as Joe Calzaghe, Steve Strange and billionaire Terry Matthews.

Her hobbies are walking, cooking and singing, though not necessarily all at the same time (though she can multi-task) and she says she's obsessed with folklore and mythology.  She's welsh, from Wales.

Laura's ambition is to create world peace and she is involved in a project to create a reproduction of the Bayeux Tapestry from pasta.

Oh, and did I mention she's welsh?
