Love Lane Lives

The history of sugar in Liverpool and the effects of the closure of the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery, Love Lane

The Girls & Boys from the Whitestuff

The Blue Turban Ladies of the Tate closure protests

"The remarkable thing about this project was not just sugar, an extraordinary but much taken for granted commodity but the extraordinary lives of ordinary refinery workers... This project has lots of historical curiosity value but it has wider ramifications for ongoing debates on the politics of food and globalization. It's also a vital record of the people who struggled against a major multinational to protect not just their own livelihoods but a whole community."

I would like to wish all ex-Liverpool employee’s where ever you are in this world of ours, a safe and joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I leave on 07.012.2014 for Windhoek for the last job of the year, return on the 23.12.2014, pack the Pajero on the 24.12.2014, and leave for the South Coast for 3 weeks.
My ode to Tate and Lyles employee’s,
I can go days without talking to you,
months without seeing you,
but not a second goes by that I’m not thinking about you.

Take care everybody, and remember that where ever we are in this world of ours, we sit under the same sun and moon.
