Alan Summers' plinth-spot

What's important to you that can be summed up in just one single word?

Alan Summers would like as many people as possible to send him "important words" and he will read out as many as he can during his hour on Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth on Monday.

I think this is an interesting project and an imaginative use of his hour in the spotlight.

Thanks Dave! ;-)

This is really much appreciated!

So come on everyone, send your 'important word' to:
importantword@withwords.org.uk

My wife Karen (who is collecting all the words) tells me they great words so far, both moving and funny, some will make me cry. You will be surprised what you will come up when you think what your important word could be for you.

all my very best to everyone,

Alan
