A few months back, my nephew Richard, requested for a meeting with me on a Friday afternoon, after work. My brief moment of hopeful peace and the splendid weekend high was paused, as I arrived home. I wondered what was so pressing that this meeting could not wait until Saturday or Sunday.
The agenda, was to seek permission to use the yard to do band practice. The Band had only 3 weeks, and that they would be taking part in the Battle of the Bands PNG 2018. They needed a place to store the equipment and instruments, they needed a yard to practice, and they needed assistance with logistics and transport. A short list of many needs for the Band; A Band which I had no idea, had existed until that day.
