This time Wilhelmena and Sacha discuss protest with Blossom Gottlieb. Do protests help our cause and how? Does it include as many people as we think it does? Is the new age of protesting on social media? Blossom is a writer and podcaster and commonly uses the name Tea With HB on social media and on her some of her work.  "I am a writer, always have been. It is less of an aspiration or a career than a state of mind. I look at the world around me and I see words, hanging from branches of trees and floating between clouds. I am also an oxymoron. My full name is Holly Blossom. Spiky and Sweet. Winter and Spring. Looks healthy and deals with an invisible disability." See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Meet Debit and Dervish. These affectionate, exuberant hound puppies live with their puppy walker Carolyn in an orchard in Hampshire. They arrived at 8 weeks old and will spend most of their first year here, before they return to a local trail hunting pack, which, which numbers some 38 couple (76) drag hunting hounds. Their puppy walker will ensure that they encounter a wide variety of people, children, horses and farm animals as well as cars, tractors. Although their destiny is pack life, hunting trails for the local hunt, this socialisation is a vital part of their development as a working hound.  Carolyn explains some of the traditions of hound ownership and gives an insight into the local hunting community, at the centre of which are the hounds. She explains to presenter Kate Fairweather how hounds like Debit and Dervish have been carefully bred to combine stamina and pace in equal measure to suit their country in the South Downs, and why they have the distinction of being one of the healthiest breeds in the canine world. Do you work your dog or dogs and would consider coming on the show?

For the first time in two years, a public event was held in Petersfield to attract shoppers and make an occasion of the Christmas light switch-on. While Petersfield’s pantomime has been kicked out of the Festival Hall to allow for COVID vaccinations, members of the cast were invited to sing at the event. Children from local schools were also on stage, before the Town Mayor, Cllr Phil Shaw, flicked the switch at 7pm. The mayor was accompanied by this year’s Petersfield Personality, David Weeks. The lights have been installed along the High Street, Chapel Street and Lavant Street.
