February 2017: aLIVE!
We began our NBS evenings for 2017 with a real mixture of stories – some old and some new. But even the old stories were fresh since every telling is different. That is the beauty of storytelling! The whole evening was recorded by Plains FM, who are putting together a programme about community events and projects. (More info about that will come later.) So we had stories about survival: near death, a cancer diagnosis and tackling an arduous running event with a killer of a hangover; and funny stories such as a relative's determination to enjoy a most unusual beverage and the inimitable idiosyncracies of Kiwis.
