Philip Simpson: August 2018
What's your favourite pizza? That was the first and most important question posed to members of London Road's 'Pizza Party' — a monthly young people's group that meets for pizza and praise.

The August meeting considered the story of the Feeding of the 5000 and the amount of pizza available would have fed a similar number.
Double pepperoni, ham & mushroom, and spicy chicken were all enjoyed, but the classic Hawaiian (ham & pineapple) was declared the favourite.
