Hoffmeister!!! You naughty man - so you liked the Peyton Place square dance - tut tut :-)
Well, we, as Bishop GUNDULF (sorry Ralphie, no dig intended, but we have had a spate of events and organisers getting our name wrong this year) had a great time. Glad you enjoyed our singing. Two ays of hard dancing/singing and drinking. I like the overal mix. As someone said earlier - if you want something to happen, then you have to do it yourselves. We always manage to start up a session wherever we have been dancing, as do Dead Horse.
I agree with Hoffmeister, the beer vouchers are a pain - could we please have them allocated so that they coincide with the NEAREST pub that we are dancing at/near? Let's face it, we spent Friay and Saturday night in The Crown and Anchor and had vouchers for The Crown which is miles (well, a long way) in the opposite direction - during the days, unable to get there as dancing nine stands and a procession!!!!
Good range of stalls, events, beers, bands etc. I always find that the people of Faversham are always friendly and pleased to have us there (mostly - I did bump into two who had had some sort of bypass performed on them!).
Big well done to the stewards as well!!
See you at Knockholt, Deal or Tentereden.
ps look out for details of the Aylesford Village Festival 2008. Tentatively got a great range of folk bands lined up including two biggies!!!!!
