A very good morning to you. Phil is back in the presenter's chair today.
Wantage Methodist Chapel
Revd. Chris Boyce (above) from the Emmanuel Church in Bicester came in to the studio to chat with Wes about "Love Bicester", a series of events about to kick off and running 20th - 28th of March. You will hear about robots, avatars and you may even see Phil Mercer in action. See http://www.lovebicester.co.uk/ for more information.
The Museum of the Book
Wes spoke to Revd. Rob Cotton about a forthcoming exhibition in May at Sandown race course that will show the personal bibles of all sorts of people, from Reggie Kray to Elvis Presley.Our paper reviewer this morning was Revd. Dr. Gillian Straine (above), Curate of Kidlington.
It's only been a couple of months since the devastating earthquake hit Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince and it is so easy to forget about this once the cameras move on, but Oxfam's Ian Bray who recently returned from Haiti came in to highlight the on going dangers that the people of Haiti face.
Ian has worked for Oxfam for more than 10 years, with over 7 years experience as an aid worker in Indonesia and Southern Africa. As the rainy season is threatening to descend on Haiti in April, the makeshift camps which now house many of those who have lost their homes are at risk of floods and the spread of disease.

Cakes for Haiti
Phil also spoke to Janet Mohapi-Banks who is helping to organise a national cake sale to raise money for Haiti. So if baking is your forte, then find out how you can help at: http://www.cakesforhaiti.org/
Our paper reviewer this morning was Jo Duckles, editor from The Door.
