The value of talking directly to everyone at the slightest opportunity

That for me is why the market at Ulverston is so important.

It can be very brief, always though, ready to be responsive if people want to talk further and knowing how to bring a conversation to an end when we wish.

In my view we don't have to even talk but just a genuine open smile that envites others to talk if they wish. This a great priviledge we have in Ulverston as we can make contact of some kind with a high proportion of those we come across.

Regular contact keeps relationships 'pottering' along ready to expand - or contract - when appropriate. This is for me why Ulverston is such a special size. This is also why I hate Facebook with a passion - it is so superficial and so inferior to real face to face contact.
