Somewhere over the rainbow... a Steps DVD
Dunstable singing sensation Faye Tozer’s reunion with Steps members proved the band really isn’t Better Best Forgotten.
Now our Faye is starring in the perfect Christmas pressie for Steps fans.
You can cheer on Faye and the rest of the band in a new DVD out later this month.
It’s called Steps: The Ultimate Tour Live, and it shows Faye, Lee, H, Claire and Lisa together again in the band’s 20-date reunion performances around the UK this year.
It says more than a little about the band’s pop popularity that this was a sell-out tour.
The years will roll back as you sing along to their hits, but there are new tracks, too.
This tour followed the huge success of their documentary series, Steps Reunion, on Sky Living, which I’m told averaged 1.3 million viewers per episode.
You can pick up a Blu-Ray or DVD copy of the tour footage from October 29.
Words Are Not Enough to sum up the delight of Steps fans.
This TV reunion really did start a Chain Reaction.
It’ll be great to see Steps in action Here & Now.
Am I having a little wordplay fun with Steps hits?
That was the Last Thing On My Mind...
I had to smile when I read about a batch of “typically British” cupcakes cooked up by Cakes by Shelly.
You know Cakes by Shelly’s Michelle Shulman. She lives in Eaton Bray, and we’re always telling you about the awards she picks up for her cake creations.
Anyway. Michelle, who also has a shop now, in Leighton Buzzard, posted a picture on Facebook the other day of these particular cupcakes.
She wrote: “Typically British cupcakes available today.
“Earl Grey cupcakes with tea-infused buttercream and digestive biscuit topping!”
Mmm. Not so much a cupcake – more a cuppacake!
Dunstable has been a TV star again, I hear.
A couple of eagle-eyed viewers flagged this up on the Don’t Let Dunstable Die Facebook page.
They said that the Priory Church was shown on BBC Two’s popular Flog It! antiques programme.
Just another reminder that even though the town has been going through troubled times, we do have plenty to be proud of, too.
My favourite things about Dunstable are the history, the gorgeous gardens and the community.
If you’re ever in a tight spot, there’s always a helping hand with a Dunstablian about.
I’m never surprised to hear that lost purses have been handed in, or that Good Samaritans rushed to the rescue when someone was in trouble in the town.
Let’s take a break from the grumbles – tell me what you love about Dunstable.

Much delight in the office the other day, when a brilliant half-circle rainbow appeared in the sky.
Our photographer Jane Russell took a photo of it, so here you go, I’m sharing the moment with you.
I thought it would be nice to write about the rainbow in the column – it just adds a little “colour”!
