The Loiterers Resistance Movement

August 2021 First Sunday: In person and on line

Dear friends, lovers and loiterers

It’s First Sunday, this Sunday and so time for a spot of creative wandering, and at long last there will be a chance to loiter together in person as well as online.

I’m finding this invitation unusually hard to write because frankly I feel a bit overwhelmed at the prospect of walking together in the real world as well as remotely. This means the next few derives will be even more experimental than usual as we try to find a path onwards that keeps Loiterers who can’t travel into Greater Manchester connected with us because I’ve loved being able to wander so much further through digital means and catch glimpses of so many other places.  

Yes, I am a bit giddy with joy to be together in the same place again but I’m also so thankful for all the wanders together, alone, during the pandemic. I am also very aware the pandemic isn’t over yet and please, whatever you are doing remember to take care of yourself and each other. Basically, don’t be an arse, respect personal space and covid safe guidelines, and if you haven’t been vaccinated yet please get that jab. Be aware all LRM events I am at will be outside; if the weather is atrocious please check in to see if plans have changed.

You are welcome to join in however and wherever you wish, either alone or in a small group, and at a pace which is right for you. We will be embarking on one of our metaphysical treasure hunts, sharing a list of things for you to find in your local environment.

Here are the options to come and play with us on Sunday 1st August:

  1. The prompts will be available online from 10am BST on Sunday 1st August. They will be posted on twitter @thelrm #Loiter2021 on our blog at the facebook group “the loiterers resistance movement”
  2. Come and find me at Green Grosvenor Park, Clarence St, Salford M7 1GF between 2-4pm. I will be there with friends from Walk The Plank as part of the Friends of Green Grosvenor Park fun day.  
  3. At 5pm I will be outside The New Oxford pub, Bexley Square, Salford to meet any loiterers who fancy a drink and a blether or a chance to share what you discovered
  4.  At 8pm BST Monday 2nd August there will be a zoom chat for sharing any remote discoveries, the link for this is here:

If you have any questions, comments or ideas for future First Sunday’s please feel free to get in touch, email, tweet @thelrm or whatsapp 07974929589

I hope to see you soon, on the street or on a screen, and as ever my heartfelt thanks for your support

With love and golden apples

PS September’s First Sunday will be part of the 4th World Congress of Psychogeography (online and we hope also in person) and I will also be collaborating with Walk The Plank on an event exploring Salford’s rivers on September 25th; more details soon
