As always so much joy to to be found from people in the queue who all have their own stories to tell.With the Record Fair kicking off just after 9am special thanks to the dealers who provided a great event for all and Ros,Dave and Chris who helped out on the day.The Live music upstairs at the Daniel Owen Community Centre was off the scale, thanks to Tom for doing such a great job on Sound, Kavus Torabi for his cosmic spell binding performance and Sendelica for nearly taking the roof off,loved it.Last but not least Pat, James and Sophie , we all had a lovely day and hope you did too.
We are so lucky, thank you!
