Bridge Workers

Day after day hanging off, under, and all over a bridge has to be challenging work.

The work on Nickel Bridge continues. A sign of hope though, it looked like yesterday, when this picture was taken, that they were taking down the coverings. A better reporter/photographer would have asked these gentlemen how much longer. Unfortunately in this case I’m most definitely not your huckleberry. Officially work is scheduled to continue “through the fall”.

Bakery to Rise Up in Manchester

There’s some work to be done on the location and they hope to open up in January.

Spotted on Instagram and Facebook is news of Wildcraft Focaccia Company picking a spot to set up shop in Manchester. They describe themselves as naturally leavened, garden-to-table, sourdough and focaccia bakery. I look forward to trying them out. They don’t state it but I’m pretty sure the address will be 1303 Hull Street.

Here’s what they said on FB about their location.

It’s finally official – I found a space. It’s taken way longer than I ever expected – I worked on several properties and had months-long negotiations three separate times. Then there was the huge chunk of time when I didn’t even look for properties during the initial covid months, but finally, after almost a year of looking, I’ve landed in Manchester! My plan as of now is getting the keys on October 1st and likely taking three months to work on the space (it needs some TLC and some layout changes) Then opening in early January. Thanks for hanging with me during my “photo only” phase and please continue to keep me company during the build-out process! I’m looking forward to seeing you in person in 2021!

The Valentine’s popular conversation series will return virtually on Tuesday, October 6, co-hosted by Valentine Director Bill Martin and Coffee with Strangers host Kelli Lemon. The free, five-event series will focus on the evolving impacts of 2020, a year full of unexpected challenges and uncomfortable conversations, all amidst the backdrop of a global pandemic and massive social change.

“The Richmond community that entered 2020 is not the same community we find ourselves a part of today,” Valentine Director Martin said. “2020 has truly been a year of historic change, and it only makes sense to use our conversation series Controversy/History to examine those changes, how they have impacted the people of the Richmond Region and what we can do as a community to move forward together.”

Each virtual event will include an exciting lineup of guest speakers discussing contemporary issues and how 2020 has either upended or reinforced Richmond’s history, followed by questions from the audience and action steps for those inspired to get involved.

Here is a complete list of dates and topics:

October 6, 2020, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
2020 and Voting

November 3, 2020, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
2020 and Mental Health

December 1, 2020, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
