So. The first weekend of Citizen Journalism month is under the belt.

No groundbreaking stories just yet, but it's early days.

Valentine's Day passed uneventfully on Tuesday. I wish I'd got more organised in advanced and put up a meetup for some early drinks somewhere, so there was at least a place for people to go to do something social and meet new mates. Next year!

Saturday: I stumbled across the Spinningfields Makers Market on Deansgate, where people sell locally-made produce such as food and trinkets.

Great music and burgers. It takes place on the third weekend of every month. The next one will be 17th-19th March. Find it outside Australasia on the way into Spinningfields.

Here's Ray from Britain's Got Talent dancing to Buddy Holly's Heartbeat, being performed by the Piccadilly Rats.

Local singer Alice Hollywood also set up stall nearby to perform her covers of contemporary pop songs. Good talent.

More info to come, including a club reopening, a celebrity singer and a boxing match.
