Thread Name: Saddleworth Cancelled 2011
Subject: RE: Saddleworth Cancelled 2011
Bugger! Hope it's not cancelled in 2011 because it is already in my diary!
Agree with Ray that if it is cancelled then 'something' should happen next year even if it is only singarounds/playarounds in the local pubs and clubs with a few 'artists' perhaps willing to appear on a voluntary/free basis to raise funds for 2012 and also to focus very importantly on recruiting new committee members and volunteers to help out the embattled and too few die-hards who have worked damned hard every year to make this very special festival so great.

I am based in the Colne Valley near Huddersfield just over the Pennines but I am willing to volunteer my services in any way I can, whether it is on the organising committee or as a volunteer to do whatever is needed to make this work.

It is no good saying it is all very sad and what a great shame that this festival may not happen in 2011. If you love this festival and don't want it to end then get off your backsides and follow me to offer your services, no matter how small, to make a real difference and don't ditther do it NOW!!!

Just invite the the organisers to PM you to make it so.
