We headed off later to the local Wetherspoons where, by an untypically heroic Stockton gesture, we were tipped off as to a phone theft, it was swiftly dealt with and justice was restored. Thanks to those involved, it made me smile and think not all of Stockton is lost.
We ended up back at the Arc, where the beer fesitval had begun. It was only for a late night pint but managed to talk to Andrew Ryan, MC for the Charity Chuckle, who was opening act for the Arc's comedy night. He was looking forward to the night, as am I, very much!
Thanks to the Diocese of Middlesbrough for publishing an article about my Coast to Coast this week, there will be a link available shortly to the media section where you can read it.
In the meantime, I have enjoyed my weekend off (from pretty much everything!) but will look forward to getting back on it next week.
