Famous people to supper

Hello readers, it’s Emily and William here on not such a nice day, meeting in person finally at the Brewhouse in Dorchester.

This week we’ve been talking about which famous people we’d most like to invite to supper.

I, Emily immediately thought of my top idol, Ronan Keating. I’d invite him because he’s amazing. I’d love to talk with him about his music, he might even give me back stage tickets for a concert! I’d also invite Sarah Millican as I love her comedy. I really understand it and she’s so funny. Rosie Jones would also be invited because she’s not your everyday comedian, and I love that people laugh with her, not at her, which can be the case with a disability. I wonder if she was ever scared people would judge her? It would be such a fun evening….

I, William, would invite Adam Hills because I’ve met him and he’s a good laugh. I watch and like the Last Leg. I’d also ask Alan Hansen, Alan Shearer and Gary Linekar so we could talk about football and sport. I’d probably also ask Danny Dyer as I like him in Eastenders and he’s funny. Perhaps after dinner we could all play the Wall. It’s a bit man heavy so for women, I’d most like to invite the Queen. I worry she might be a bit frail so I’d invite Princess Ann too. I like Princess Ann because she is also a sports woman.

I’d have Dire Straits to play music during dinner and Status Quo afterwards for some dancing, plus Shirely from Strictly to help with our dance moves. The biggest problem is that my flat might be too small for everyone so we might have to spread out into the street!

Who would you have for your celebrity supper?

I am in the United States and I love the people with learning disability I am hearing from in England. I love the way you talk about important ideas. I try to attend People First meetings that are on Zoom because we are all the same all around the world. We are kind people and we care deeply about each other. That is what People First is and it has always been that way. I am working to share what I am learning from groups across the United States, Canada, Africa, and the United Kingdom.

On April 9th there will be a Zoom meeting starting at 4:00pm and lasting until 4:00am. It is a drop in meeting that will b…
