Thread Name: Saddleworth Cancelled 2011
Subject: RE: Saddleworth Cancelled 2011
A great shame. Quite understand the reasons tho. The committee(s) over the years have done stirling work in staging a great festival and much thanks must got to then especially to Ali O'Brien who was a key figure for most of those years. To expect the same people to carry on (all voluntarily of course) each year is a lot to ask.
Lets hope, as the safra web site says, that they can ressurect in 2012. Be quite willing to help out, as hopefully more will in any way - even if publicing with leaflets etc.
In the meantime, good idea Ray to p'raps hold some small events/singarounds in Con clubs and pubs, mebbbe even as fund raisers for 2012 !
