The playing of the Last Post at sunset
This is the last post for this blog. In February I planned to end it on the last day of May and I have kept my promise to myself.
Writing this Signs of Communities blog has been a personal learning experience. Learning to use WordPress as a CMS – a Content Management System. So much easier, quicker and cheaper than full web design.
I’ve also learned about communities in Kirklees, England. Learned much more than I had the time to post about on the blog. And learned about my honourable family history with its powerful Asian connections – learned very much more than I could post about.
Thank you for your interest in visiting Signs of Communities and reading my posts.
In the words of a great TV star – “Goodnight, thank you, and may your God go with you.”

The current issue of Private Eye magazine gives three comic examples of how some people can read ‘community’ into anything:
“Eurocontrol, the FAA and the Russian State Research Institute of Aviation Systems have agreed on the need for three conferences which will bring together the wake vortex community at a global level” – Guild of Air Traffic Control Officers.
“Challenges facing the undersea defence community” – press release for Undersea Defence Technology conference, Hamburg.
“The eagle falconry community is small, self-policing and extremely responsible” – Daily Telegraph.

Signs of Communities is a web log of the work of the author and other people who work on behalf of the communities in Kirklees, West Yorkshire, England. Work to celebrate and increase the cohesion of our rich variety of communities.
This blog also makes occasional virtual trips to South-east Asia – for reasons of personal community heritage which are outlined in About Me.
