Judy lives in Newsham Park and represents the Liverpool Central neighbourhood. Judy first clapped eyes on Liverpool when she arrived with her father from Trinidad via sea passage in the 60′s, and has ever since been fascinated by Liverpool’s famous waterfront. She’s keen to expand her knowledge of the city’s arts and culture and wants to share her experiences with her friends, colleagues and with the communities she works in.
Judy’s favourite things
Book – The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
From challenging and difficult racial tension in Southern State, comes hope, joy, warmth and triumph for this young girl Lily!
Film – The Quiet Man (John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara)
Conveys all the emotions of hope against all odds, a study in human behaviour/mental distress in the case of Betty Davies, and its complexities tinged with laughter, joy, pain and finally triumph.
Song – Just to be Close to You by the Commodores
Takes me on a journey of my early years, new locations, relationship.
TV show – All period drama productions, River Cottage, Frozen Planet, and Current World Affairs on CNN
Play – Mrs Brown (it just made me laugh so much!)
Also Blood Brothers once again – great production and very moving.
Artist – I have no favourite artist
I have very eclectic tastes and I’m open to all experiences.
Building – Sefton Park Palm House
Reminds me of warmth/sunshine and my Caribbean roots, love the natural light, location in Sefton Park and just people watching/ reading there in SUMMER.
Restaurant – Eureka and 60 Hope Street Restaurant
Eureka, unpretentious setting, full of people from all walks of life, great atmosphere where large groups share that dining experience. Hope Street, location, great presentation of food, not stuffy but bit special- love the location area in Georgian surroundings.
View – From the Ferry coming into Liverpool Docking Area
Just an amazing waterfront – a world away from when I first arrived into Liverpool via passenger crossing from Trinidad as a child in 1962.
Person – Too many to name!
