Busy Lizzie Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival (2011) (72* d) RE: Middlewich Folk & Boat Festival (England 02 Mar 11

My goodness what a busy day you have all had! Whilst I have been out doing my day job - for which I do get paid, I have come home to run my other business - for which I expect to get paid having done the same job voluntarily for many years. Or is there some reason why I shouldn't! I don't really understand that! I don't really mind who buys the tickets whether they are from this town or any other - the fact is I have put the hours in along with my team and we are doing an honest job, if we are in profits after the event I will say - job well done!And it will be up to us what we do with those profits. All my concerts up to now have been in profit however small or as with my final year with MFAB in the thousands - leaving a healthy profit in the bank - not my bank I hasten to add!!!
Stop being so negative Macawber! We are all entitled to make an honest crust and without being made to feel guilty! Richard Branson - I wonder if he makes a profit on V fest! Or the Oysters from theirs - or Fairport from Cropredy! This I believe has been said before the last time I stood accused. Now get on with your life Macawber and let people get on with what they have to do. Good luck with your future voluntary work. Ever thought of being a politician ?!
And finally - the actual prospect of putting on a mainstage folk stage back into the festival was to bring revenue into the town from outside - for which MFAB won awards for tourism in previous years. However - this was seen to be a far too big a task to organise even between us in the few months available. It would have forged a good working partnership and who knows - may do another year! In the meantime we welcome you to purchase tickets for any of our concerts that will be happening across cheshire this summer.
Keeping both musicians and associated industries in business.
That I hope will be my final word.
