Ex BBC journalist Lousie Batchelor was the presenter of the opening sessions at the Nitrogen conference at the Edinburgh Conference Centre. I said a quick hello as I had met her and her husband many (many) years ago when I ran a hotel over at Loch Lomond – both keen on jazz and he played in one of the bands I hired to play at the hotel on Sundays in the summer.

Her gleaming smile was still very much part of her persona.
