Thanks Banjiman and Stallion for the informative background to all this.

Oh the curse of interfering politicians...

I'm not carping - or criticising (especially not Richard)- just hoping to get better informed.

It seems to be a matter of knowing who's "in the know" and knowing the right time to contact them.   
Rather than to find out about such laudable ventures only at such a late date, when other commitments have already been made.
Even tho' I try to keep my ear to the ground, ears are not infallible.. and there are only so many hours in a day !

And yes, you know full well that I do also "put the effort in to make things happen myself" (I won't indulge in any self-publicity)...
I find the carpers usually tend to be those who don't.

I'm sorry not to be able to make it up to Whitby myself this year.
Maybe next year then - if I'm in the loop and find out in good time...

Good luck to all involved with the upcoming weekend. It deserves to succeed.
